Join us for the first Modernism Week Twilight Tour of 2023 celebrating the 11th year of illuminating architecturally significant buildings. Modernism Week co-founder and chairman, William Kopelk - the driving force behind the Modernism Week illumination project - will be joining your tour guide to co-host a tour of the downtown area. When we arrive at the Palm Springs Visitor Center we will disembark and participate in the ceremonial lighting of the Albert Frey designed 1965 Tramway Gas Station (now the Visitor Center) by Palm Springs Mayor, Grace Garner.
This effort for new permanent lighting was led by Palm Springs Modern Committee (PSMODCOM) and was supported by members of the Palm Springs preservation community. We will reboard the bus to return to CAMP driving past other illuminated buildings as we light up the 2023 Twilight Tours!
