The beautiful climate, wide-open spaces, and clean décor of Palm Springs make the perfect home for our beloved desert dogs. In this slideshow presentation, Baron and Wexler will discuss the stunning examples of midcentury modern design that these pets are lucky to call home.  

Photographer Nancy Baron is based in L.A. and Palm Springs. Her prints have been exhibited internationally and are held in public and private collections. Nancy’s photography has been featured in notable publications worldwide and on the Apple, CNN and BBC websites. Her two books (Kehrer Verlag), The Good Life > Palm Springs and Palm Springs > The Good Life Goes On, are held in the collection of the Library of Congress and various museum libraries, including MOMA, LACMA and the Getty. Nancy’s third monograph, Palm Springs Modern Dogs at Home, was published by Schiffer Books in September 2020.

A Palm Springs native, Gary Wexler has practiced independently in Palm Springs for over 35 years as Gary Wexler Design. Gary has coordinated and completed all development, layout, typography and production art for complex projects with a creative vision rooted in modernity. Throughout the 1980s he worked preparing architectural graphics (Donald Wexler & Associates), studied at Art Center College of Design and, in the early ‘90s, served as in-house graphic designer for the Palm Springs Art Museum. His focus for much of the last three decades has been on art, architecture and architectural preservation and education.
