The Fabricated American Desert: Modern and Anti-Modern

Click for more information

Friday–Saturday, 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
The southwestern desert has long stood for American individualism, modernist and anti-modernist sentiments, and social and political experiments. As such it has attracted artistic and architectural movements that give form to these ideas. This conference brings together scholars from diverse disciplines to explore the relationship between desert extremes and the built environment. $25. Program and registration or 626-405-3432.
