Midcentury Modern aficionados, go ahead and schedule a reminder for noon on Sunday, February 1.
That's when tickets to the 2015 edition of the Modern Phoenix Home Tour go on sale. In recent years, the tour has highlighted mostly residential architecture from big names including Ralph Haver and Paolo Soleri in such neighborhoods and areas as Arcadia, Phoenix's west side, and Sunnyslope. Now in its 11th year, the tour will put the spotlight on mid-century dwellings in Southern Scottsdale.
The one-day, self-guided tour through "SoSco" will run from 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday, April 19, and serve as the centerpiece and finale for Modern Phoenix Week, which also will offer lectures, events, mixers, smaller-scale tours, and a marketplace between April 10 and 18. Neighborhoods included in this year's 12-stop tour are Town and Country, Sherwood Heights, Papago Gardens, Golden Keys, and Village Grove. Attendees will receive a map of all the locations upon checking in at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art on the day of the event.
Tickets to the Home Tour sell out every year, and there's no indication that 2015 will be an exception to the rule. They cost $40 per person and will be available through Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts' online box office. SMoCA members pay $35 if they order their tickets by phone at 480-499-8587.
