Educate, Preserve, & Celebrate

Founded in 1982, the Art Deco Society of Washington is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization devoted to the preservation of the architectural, industrial, decorative, and cultural arts of the Art Deco era.

The Art Deco Society of Washington has led numerous efforts to save important Washington-area Art Deco architecture. The Society also offers members the opportunity to meet other Washington DC-area lovers of Art Deco at tours, cocktail parties, fashion shows, lectures, films, dances, and other special events.

Since its inception, the Society has held an annual show and sale of 20th century vintage clothing, furniture, housewares, and collectibles. Now known as the Washington Modernism Show, the show features dealers from across the country and even overseas.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society currently holds its programs, including the 2021 Washington Modernism Show, online. The 2021 Modernism Show will be held April 23-25 in partnership with Ruby Lane, with an early buyers period beginning April 22nd. Information on the 2021 Washington Modernism Show and other virtual programming can be obtained on the show website:
