Palm Springs, CA (December 15, 2010) -- Palm Springs Modernism Week has just launched a new, dynamic and user-friendly website and i-Phone App that will provide useful up-to-date information on events, tickets and new exciting developments as they happen.

“Both of these technical and technological improvements will provide our audience with helpful tools that will enable them to access all information on Modernism Week efficiently and rapidly,” said chairman Jacques Caussin.
As one of the Palm Springs’ most successful signature events, Modernism Week (February 17-27, 2011) is a fun-filled celebration of all things “modern,” defined by a cultural movement between 1940 – 1970 that redefined forms of art, architecture, and design. The 11-day festival features a variety of entertaining, educational and exciting events that will include the Modernism Show, films, architecture tours, swank parties, art exhibitions, music, food and fun. With over 50 events during the 2011 Palm Springs Modernism Week, participants will have a wide choice from popular audience favorites, new components, as well as many events that are free to the public.
