Join Vera – The Art and Life of an Icon author, Susan Seid, and fashion designer Trina Turk for an elegant, and exclusive, sunset cocktail reception at Trina’s hillside modernist Palm Springs home.
If you attend the Vera presentation earlier in the day at 1:30PM, you will discover that Susan is the owner of Vera Neumann’s original artwork that each of her scarves and housewares designs were based on, as well as the author of the preeminent book about Vera and her legacy, and Trina is an ardent admirer and collector of Vera’s designs.
The sunset reception will be at ‘Ship of the Desert’, Trina’s beloved home in The Mesa neighborhood of Palm Springs. Designed in 1936 by architects Adrian Wilson and Erle Webster in a streamline Modern style with features that give semblance to a ship, the house received its moniker from Sunset magazine when they featured it on the cover of a 1937 issue.
Guests will enjoy expansive sunset views across the valley, and delicious hors d’oeuvres catered by Jake’s of Palm Springs. A rare opportunity to visit an extraordinary home, experience some of the ‘Palm Springs Style’ that Trina Turk so perfectly exemplifies and as a unique homage to the legacy of Vera Neumann. Guests will leave with a surprise remembrance of the evening.
