Art Deco Weekend was created nearly 40 years ago by the Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL) to showcase the beautiful Art Deco buildings of South Beach, saving it for future generations.  MDPL’s early work was the catalyst that created the vibrant, world-class city we live in today.  Learn about the important work of MDPL and how to help.  cultural organizations
