For our Hugh Kaptur fans, read on to see how you can “Kaptur” every event relating to your favorite designer.
“Hugh Kaptur: Organic Desert Architecture”
Hugh M. Kaptur, a true Coachella Valley treasure, is a visionary designer who practiced in the area from the late 1950s through the early 2000s. Though many of his designs are considered among the most creative and innovative of the era, “Hugh Kaptur: Organic Desert Architecture” at the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center will be the first museum exhibition of Kaptur’s body of work. Enjoy this free exhibition that includes many archival materials of architectural drawings, models, slides, and more. Modernism Week guests can enjoy complimentary admission, courtesy of the exhibition’s Lead Sponsor, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation. February 14-24, 2019, Time varies. Tickets available here.
