Great Gift Idea
Living and working in Southern California, we’re so fortunate to be surrounded by some of the most iconic architectural treasures in the world. If you have an interest in mid 20th century architecture, living and working near Palm Springs is like being a kid in a candy store! Some of our favorites are the Steel Development Houses by Donald Wexler. If you’re looking for a special gift for someone for the holidays, or a great gift for yourself, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation will be presenting The Wexler Weekend Jan. 22-24, 2010. You can purchase a weekend pass that will get you into all of the events which run from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, or purchase al la cart and you can pick and choose. A few of the highlights will be a Champaign Jazz Brunch with Mr. Wexler in attendance, in honor of his 84th birthday, and tours of Wexler designed properties. Tours will include Wexler Tract homes in El Rancho Vista Estates, Wexler’s own Palm Springs home and Wexler designed celebrity homes. Attached is a clip of the film “Journeyman Architect: The Life and Work of Donald Wexler” which will be previewed in its entirety to kick off the weekend on Jan. 22. No matter where you live, here’s a great reason to come spend a warm, beautiful weekend in Palm Springs. Happy Holidays!
