Full Details

Mod With A Twist is a series of five 10-minute presentations highlighting the fun, craziness and whimsy behind life in the midcentury. Topics range from what influenced architects in the midcentury (including cowboy culture and dreams of utopia) to the impact of psychedelic drugs on midcentury society. We are proud to say that we have been one of the most popular events during Modernism Week and have played to sold out crowds for the past 5 years. Attendees are guaranteed to chuckle, gasp and learn something new while enjoying a glass of wine and some midcentury snacks. An opportunity to tour the former Manager's unit of the historic Desert Star is included in the ticket price.
