Celebrating the Elegance of a Bygone Era

We hope to expand the community’s knowledge and awareness of Art Deco by offering educational programs, lectures and museum and walking tours. We also will keep the public abreast of preservation issues through public meetings and announcements via various media outlets.

Re-creating and celebrating the elegance of this glamorous era is another important step in the preservation process. To bring the community together to celebrate the social aspects of the era, the Art Deco Society of Virginia plans to host and sponsor numerous era-appropriate events such as social gatherings, dance events, film series, lawn and garden parties and galas. We want to encourage enthusiasts to dress the part and to have a good old fashioned time!
