The Greenbelt Museum was proud to help promote the Art Deco Society’s 2010 Exposition of 20th Century Decorative Arts. The Art Deco Society of Washington is a nonprofit organization devoted to preservation of the architectural, industrial, decorative, and cultural arts of Art Deco era. The Expo is the primary source of funding to support ADSW’s preservation and education efforts and offers an excellent opportunity for those interested in 20th century design to buy high quality vintage furnishings, housewares, art, clothing, jewelry, and much more.
Help to support both the Greenbelt Museum and ADSW by purchasing advance tickets to the Expo online at www.adsw.org. When checking out, simply enter GM (Greenbelt Museum) in the company field of the billing address and the Greenbelt Museum will receive a portion of the ticket price. The Greenbelt Museum will only receive a portion of the ticket price from online sales, not from day-of sales, so please reserve your spot in advance! Thank you.
The Expo began in 1983 primarily as an Art Deco show, making it the nations’ oldest Modernism Show. Held annually at locations in Washington, DC and its Northern Virginia suburbs, the Expo gradually expanded to include other design movements of the 20th century. The 2010 show will include the sale of all 20th Century design movements, including Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, Art Moderne, Mid Century Modern, Scandinavian Modern, and Atomic.
