From The Art Deco Festival Part I




The Art Deco Weekend® Festival was started in 1976 by the Miami Design Preservation League to attract visitors to Miami Beach’s Art Deco Historic District and to raise awareness and appreciation of the arts and culture of the Art Deco era (approx. 1925-1945)






The festival was set on Miami Beach's famed Ocean Drive, from 5th to 15th streets. The streets were closed down for booths of jewelry, art, vintage clothing, and a few collectables. Although the actual "Art Deco" was within the surrounding area, we enjoyed exploring the tables and booths. I was in my glory taking a new batch of photos. This is part 1 of 2. Part 2 will be posted in Photos for Friday...















Although the preservation site had said  the Art Deco Weekend 2010 would celebrate the technology, design, and American spirit embodied in the open road, this was one of two vintage cars we actually saw at the show







One of the hallmarks of the 1930s was its passionate love affair with new technology, particularly the technology of transportation.
Miami Beach’s building boom came during the second phase of Art Deco known as Streamline Moderne.
Ironically, Ralph Lauren, who is also a famed automobile collector, has a store located in the heart of the deco district. When you look at some of his Modern Home RL collections, you can see some of the streamlined detail of the deco period, especially the automobile, being some of his inspirations.



You can see how designers refer to the past to re-create the present...
