Art Deco Weekend draws crowd to South Beach
on Monday,January 17,2011 21:01
Art Deco may not be as influential as it was when it debuted in the 1920s, but enthusiasts are still finding ways to celebrate its importance in history.
Recently, Art Deco Weekend was held in Miami, Florida, to commemorate the period which was widely popular during World War II. This is the 34th time the event has been held for South Beach tourists and art enthusiasts from across the country. Art Deco Weekend has not only grown in popularity because of the works on display, but because of the hosts' efforts to involve visitors.
"We try to engage new participants every year, that’s important," Amy Tancig, Art Deco Weekend executive director, told the Miami Herald. "There are always new tourists in town who want to explore something fun. A street festival on Ocean Drive is exciting. And we engage the locals by bringing elements they want to see."
Individuals are encouraged to bring their own pieces from the art deco era to showcase and sell at the event. Students from local postsecondary institutions also typically receive the opportunity to display their work at Art Deco Weekend.
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
