ADC Fundraiser Cocktail Party: Kaptur the Moment!

23 February 2019
This event is online

Celebrate the work of Hugh Kaptur with the Palm Springs Art Museum’s Architecture and Design Council (ADC) as we take over Kaptur Court for a night of modernist revelry! Tour Kaptur-designed homes, dance in the streets to the Gand Band, and enjoy an open bar, catered heavy hors d’oeuvres, and more. Capture your Kaptur Modernist style as we celebrate five decades of Kaptur's work. We invite you to dress according to the mod style of your favorite decade!

Recently completed in the Little Tuscany neighborhood, Kaptur Court translates Hugh Kaptur’s mid-20th century residential design into the vocabulary of the 21st century, with larger spaces, taller ceilings, new materials, and the latest technologies. Floor plans are similar to those Kaptur designed in the 1950’s but the square footage has increased form 1,586 square feet to 2,150 square feet. These architectural gems will excite and entertain. And we will have an opportunity to tour the houses and their generous one-third acre private landscapes.
