General Information
The Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL), a non profit organization, and its founder, Barbara Baer Capitman, created Art Deco Weekend in 1976 to bring awareness and appreciation to the iconic skyline of Art Deco buildings on Ocean Drive. 
 
The festival was the catalyst that saved the largest collection of Art Deco architecture concentrated in one small area in the world. Further, the Miami Beach Architectural Historic District is the first and largest Art Deco district in the United States to be recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. 
 
With that mission accomplished, there is still more to do!   MDPL continues to preserve, promote and protect our city through historic preservation and education initiatives, as well as through cultural awareness.   

Please visit our website at www.mdpl.org to learn more.
 
Art Deco Weekend is MDPL’s signature event and largest educational outreach program of the year.  Your participation in Art Deco Weekend helps make this possible, and we thank you for your support.
