One of our favorite annual events is the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Held at the Palm Springs Convention Center during Modernism Week, the four-day show features more than 85 national and international exhibitors presenting excellent collections of furnishings, decorative objects and fine art from all design movements of the 20th century.


This year’s show is Feb. 13 – 16, opening with a Preview Gala and early-buying opportunity on Friday, Feb . 13 from 6 – 9 p.m, benefiting Modernism Week. Preview Gala tickets are $75 in advance and $95 at the door, and include a show catalog and return entry all weekend. General admission throughout the rest of the weekend (see hours below) is $20 per person, and tickets are available at the door or online.


On Saturday, Feb. 14, exhibitor Dragonette Ltd. will host a book signing with author Ron Avery, who will be signing copies of Sid Avery: The Art of the Hollywood Snapshot from noon – 1 p.m. in booth #100.
