Art Deco Weekend ended up being a great turn out with a perfect 75 degree day in January! Here are a few of my favorite photos from this exciting weekend…

The South Beach Art Deco weekend is a yearly South Florida festival that features the best is music, art and more associated with this old “Deco” style.  Art Deco is a style that is inspired by the early 20th century art and architecture of European countries like France and Germany first becoming popular in the United States during the 30’s. Its unique designs are instantly recognizable and truly define Miami Beach.

The term Art Deco was coined in the 80’s to define the styles that were becoming popular in Miami Beach at the time. Some of the qualities that would typically define Art Deco are curved edges and corners, neon lighting and round porthole windows. Held each year in January, the South Beach Art Deco weekend allows the residents of South Florida as well as visitors, the opportunity to buy unique pieces of art to add to their collections. The pieces are sold at auctions and include restored classics. People who are looking to purchase these pieces can attend a wide variety of lectures and talks designed to teach them all about the works. People attending the Art Deco weekend can also expect to be treated to performances of some of the best music from the 1930’s Broadway era that is associated with the art deco style.
