Description

Direct from Palm Springs, California, we're bringing you a fresh look at all things Midcentury! Surprising concepts related to music, food and Midcentury culture will provide illuminating insights and a few laughs to be sure. This will be a fun event with an irreverent look at the Midcentury through a series of short, humorous talks and shows. You won't want to miss Modernism with a Twist! And where better for this event to take place than the lovely 1959 Morelli House designed by Hugh E. Taylor for Antonio Morelli who, from 1954 to 1972, was the orchestra conductor and musical director for the Sand’s Hotel and Casino Copa Showroom. Today, it is the only remaining home from the Desert Inn Estates.
