by Brad Schmett I hope you’ve had an opportunity to attend some of the past Desert Town Hall Lectures presented in the Emerald Ballroom at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort and Spa, both in the past and during this extraordinary 2015 season.

The Modernism Week website describes it with three words that say it better than I ever could: Cool, Iconic, Modern. Indeed, that certainly sums it up. The 1950’s and 1960’s in Palm Springs were a time like no other.
