Photographs of Art Deco Museum VIP Reception on 10/9/14

Art Deco Museum VIP Reception on Thursday, October 9, 2014.

“Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL) is proud to present Miami Beach’s Art Deco Museum.  The Museum allows tourists and local to better understand the architectural heritage and community culture of Miami Beach. MDPL designed the museum to be educational and informational, while reflecting the fun and glamour of Miami Beach.”

“A visit to the museum will teach about the three major historic design styles in Miami Beach.  These styles are Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco and Miami Modern (MiMo).  Scale models of select buildings allow you to have a closer look at the elements of these structures. You will also learn about the development of the City Miami Beach. The Miami Beach Visual Memoirs project has recorded the personal stories of people who have been a part of Miami Beach’s story. MDPL’s history is also on display so that guests can learn more about preservation. The museum includes a resource center, a children’s area, rotating exhibits and much more!”
