Time Flies!

Whew, what a year it's been!

The Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour completely took over the first seven months of my year - a real labor of love and totally worth it. The tour donated $3,000 to our neighbors at the Short Center South -- a day program that serves adults with developmental disabilities.

Our small but spirited army of three also founded Sacramento Modern (aka SacMod), a non-profit association whose mission is to promote, preserve and protect modern art, architecture and design in the Sacramento region. We're working on events for the coming year. Stay tuned for announcements and the unveiling of our new website. Many of you have expressed an interest in participating; thank you and bear with us while we make room.

My favorite thing has been rediscovering our region's recent past by researching who designed and built our city. I look forward to learning more in the months ahead.

Here's to a happy, healthy, peaceful and productive 2011!

Thanks so much for all your hard work. It was an amazing tour and most certainly,for us,one of the high points of 2010. You should be very proud. Happy New Year to you! Looking forward to the next tour. You rock!

One of these days, I hope to join one of tours. Great work!

That'd be great! Would love to meet you. I'm working on the next tour but it all depends on whether we get enough homeowners with authentic MCMs to participate. And if our crew has the time and energy while we are banging out necessary paperwork for the organization and living our lives, haha :)
