Southridge at Sunset

Sunday, February 18, 2018

The Thomas and Berniece Griffing Residence, in the historic Southridge neighborhood of Palm Springs, was the perfect venue for the announcement of PSPF’s first “Patrick McGrew Memorial Research Grant.” Built in 1962 and designed by Ross Patton and Albert "Duke" Wild, the California Ranch-style midcentury residence was recently restored by homeowner and preservation architect Susan Secoy-Jensen and her husband Dan Jensen. The sophisticated cocktail event treated partygoers to a spectacular sunset and the glittering lights of the valley below. (Photos Mood Creative)

The $10,000 grant was awarded to the Palm Springs Art Museum for the purpose of preserving and digitizing the museum's archive of architect Hugh Kaptur’s architectural models, drawings and photographs. To read more about the grant, click here.
