Art Deco of the Palm Beaches [FL]

Art Deco of the Palm Beaches seeks to preserve and share the Art Deco architecture and 20th-century design and artwork of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, Florida. Art Deco was a reaction against the Art Nouveau movement of the 1890s, which emphasized curvilinear design. In contrast, Art Deco emphasizes linear qualities and "harsh" geometries. Cultural design influences include Japan and the Aztec and Mayan Empires.

The organization offers lectures and customizable tours. Lecture topics include non-local Art Deco works.
