OPENING RECEPTION FOR
Art DÃ©co: Un Tour de France
Photographs by Alice Goldhagen
The style that became known as Art Deco first came to the attention of the world in the Exposition Internationale des Arts DÃ©coratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925. While the Art Deco style is perhaps best known in its architectural expression, artists and designers also incorporated elements of the style into their designs for such diverse items as jewelry, textiles, furniture, graphic arts, fashion, and transportation.
Miami-based visual artist and photographer Alice Goldhagen brings a 21st century perspective to Art Deco architecture and ornamentation throughout France. Her photographs evoke the elegance and sophistication of the 1920s and 30s.
The exhibit is open daily (except Mondays) from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, until 03 January 2009. Free admission.
Art DÃ©co: Un Tour de France is made possible with the generous support of Rex Art, Dreyfus Ashby & Co. and the Alliance Francaise of Miami.
Location: Art Deco Education Center at Historic City Hall, 1130 Washington Av, Miami Beach
