Art Deco Weekend Recap

Posted on January 23, 2013

We had a great time at ADW. We were out and about all weekend long and are just getting back into the swing of things. If you haven’t heard of Miami’s Art Deco Weekend before, we encourage you to read up on the festival and Miami’s historic Arts District.

 Art Deco Weekend is a 3-day celebration of Miami’s world-famous preserved buildings that stretch along the one-mile Art Deco District. Now, in its 36th year, ADW offered the best exhibits, food, drinks and performances Miami’s art deco culture has to offer. The festival was first started in 1976 by the Miami Design Preservation League to bring tourists to Ocean Drive in Miami Beach to raise awareness and an appreciation for the art deco culture.

Here’s a compilation of links we love from ADW:
