Many people think that modernism can only be found in renowned museums, but art can often be seen in everything from buildings to graffiti. In Palm Springs, California, a number of art enthusiasts flock to the area strictly for the scenery, according to The Desert Sun.
Palm Springs Modernism Week is celebrated annually in the area to recognize the modernism that can be seen in the architecture in the region. As a result of the contemporary look of the local structures, many Palm Springs residents are also turning to modern interior design. Industry analysts say that the area has quickly become a hub of inspiring art and architecture.
"Modernism Week is growing by leaps and bounds beyond just the architecture and it's very exciting," Gary Johns, Modernism Week board member, told the news source. "The continued growth of Modernism Week indicates interest and demand for entertainment, education and awareness, based around the common theme of midcentury modern preservation and admiration."
Individuals who visit Palm Springs Modernism Week may be motivated to enter the architecture and design industry.
More than 22,000 jobs are expected to be available for architects within the next seven years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
