Modern Phoenix Week 2017


In spring of 2017 Modern Phoenix will celebrate 13 years
of award-winning tours, talks, workshops and events
about Midcentury Modern design in Central Arizona.

2017 events will be presented in partnership with the
Docomomo_US National Symposium: Modernism and Climate.

Purchase a full Symposium ticket now
to unlock VIP access to additional tours!

The four-day Symposium is $250 for Members of Docomomo / $300 Non-Members. We encourage the national audience to arrive early and enjoy the first half of the week with the local MoPhos if they are able.

What about Modern Phoenix Week?

We'll be doing things a little differently this year, and we're still scheduling the rest of the week's events! Tickets for all other events, including the opportunity to attend Docomomo events a-la-carte, are scheduled to go on sale February 1. Many events will be free with RSVP. The full Modern Phoenix Week agenda will be published in late January. Exact schedule and venues are subject to change, but we're giving you a preview below.
