Art Deco Society of California

art deco, art deco history, art deco awareness, art deco preservation

I forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that we have an organization in California dedicated exclusively to the preservation and promotion of all things Art Deco.  Founded in 1981 by architectural historian Michael Crowe and other preservationists in the Bay Area, the Art Deco Society of California (ADSC) is a non-profit volunteer-run organization focused on the serious business of preserving important Art Deco historical buildings (current project is to save Berkeley’s Iceland), in addition to celebrating Art Deco culture through fun and celebratory activities, such as cocktail events (that’s right, you can get your drink on while learning about art & history!), film screenings, fashion shows, and glamorous balls… all held in gorgeous historic venues.  Sounds fun, eh? You can friend them on Facebook to see more about upcoming events, or check their link (above) for more Deco history and information, or to become a member or volunteer….
