Willis is excited to continue as “Major Sponsor” for Modernism 2020. Over the past three years, Willis along with Corian® Design, have both worked along-side Modernism Week staff and Board of Directors to help promote and add value to this unique 10-day event celebrating mid-century modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. With the introduction of “Learning Lab” coupled with the VIP bus tour, we continue to see more and more commercial and residential designers from across California engage and visit Palm Springs for this event.
This year we will include Arpa HPL and Fenix® to our sponsorship. We feel the offering Arpa HPL and FENIX® products are a perfect fit for mid-century modern design, and we are excited to see how designers utilize these materials in application.
In 2020, we will continue to offer the VIP bus tour which will include pick-up locations from San Diego, Orange County, LA and Palm Springs. Dates for the 2020 tour will be February 19th, 20th, and 21st. The VIP experience will once again include several home tours, a CEU, cocktail hours and other special entertainment.
The mission of Modernism Week is to celebrate and foster the appreciation of mid-century architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in the greater Palm Springs area.
Modernism Week is a California 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Our EIN is 27-1259579.
