If you have been reading this site for some time you know I hate the winter and the cold. My wife and I are finally heading to Palm Springs this year to get some sun and to experience the mid-century modern mecca during Modernism Week, which begins Feb. 17. Make sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter for all the modern action. Here are some pieces I have been reading as we plan the trip: an interview with Modernism Week founder Jacques Caussin, a self-guided tour by Palm Springs tour guru Robert Imber and a nice piece on the “quiet elegance” of architect Donald Wexler. I also discovered the funky, mod art of Nat Reed. And maybe I will dream about buying this home by Albert Frey. California or bust.
