Celebrate World Art Deco Day with Art Deco Seattle

April 28, 2021

The International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS) has established April 2021 as World Art Deco Month, culminating in World Art Deco Day on April 28. That date was the grand opening day of the 1925 Paris Exposition of Decorative and Industrial Arts, the exposition which had great impact on the design world for years to come.

Join retired Historic Seattle Program Director Lawrence Kreisman virtually as he looks at some of the leading figures in the development of regional architecture and interiors during the Jazz Age in Art Deco to Modernism: Interwar Architecture in Seattle. The period between the two world wars was one of economic and social turmoil, but also one of great creativity in art, architecture, and the decorative arts.

Several local buildings that emerged during this time incorporated distinct Pacific Northwest images which were interpreted by local sculptors and craftspeople in glass, bronze, plaster, stone, and terra cotta. Notable among these motifs were water, mountains, trees, and plants that would have been recognizable to residents of the region. They distinguish Seattle’s Art Deco buildings from those built elsewhere and provide a valuable lesson to today’s designers about tapping local and regional characteristics to develop unique and memorable architecture.

Wednesday, April 28 | 12 – 1:30 PM | Free!
