Please join us in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Slim Aarons photograph “Poolside Gossip” with one of the original subjects, Nelda Linsk. A longtime local resident and humanitarian, Nelda is the glamorous woman wearing yellow depicted in Slim Aaron’s iconic photograph. Enjoy cocktails, light bites and a special photo op with Nelda as she recreates the famous moment in front of a backdrop of her former home, the Kaufmann house. Linsk, who grew up in Texas, moved to Palm Springs from Philadelphia in 1965 with her late husband Joseph Linsk and purchased the iconic Richard Neutra designed Kaufmann House, which is featured in the Aarons photograph along with Nelda and her close friend Helen Dzo Dzo Kaptur. The iconic 1970 photograph, which graces sophisticated homes around the world, has become celebrated for immortalizing the good life in Palm Springs, garnering hundreds of thousands of media impressions for the destination.
