For nearly a decade, Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation (THPF) has organized Tucson Modernism Week  (TMW) - endeavoring to bring dynamic local, regional and national speakers, highlight hidden modernist treasures scattered throughout our community and present the insightful, and often overlooked, history of our region's mid-century heritage.


TMW Guide 2016 explores the legacy of post WWII architecture and design highlighting the graphic and advertising work of Cabat-Gill Advertising Agency, the master jewelry design of Frank Patania, the pioneering environmentally responsive design of architect Arthur T. Brown and the University of Arizona's role in the race to the Moon.


Since 2015, Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation has annually published the Tucson Modernism Week Guide.
