Tucson Modernism Week Virtual 2020, November 6th – 8th. The Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation presents this 9th annual event online and in cyberspace. This unique experience will feature new versions of our classic programs and favorite events including lectures with nationally respected authors and historians, a virtual interactive 360 4K Mid-Century Home Tour, downloadable content including self-guided tours, a digital Mod Cocktail experience, and partner experiences including special Modernist programming from the University of Arizona Museum of Art.  Registration is required, all programming is free. 

Tucson Modernism Week Virtual 2020 is made possible through the generous support of Visit Tucson, City of Tucson, and Pima County. You can support the 2020 programming and the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation with a certifiable contribution. 

Tucson’s modernism captured the exuberance of the post-WWII era and is defined by clean, simple lines and a casual informality. In the southern Arizona desert, the movement has come to be defined as Sonoran Modern with the use of regional materials, adaptation to the desert climate, and an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living. As part of Tucson Modernism Week programming, we work to bring various perspectives on Modern Design to Tucson.
