WORLD ART DECO DAY
World Art Deco Day is an annual month-long celebration of Art Deco taking place in April. Throughout the month International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS) Member Organizations produce programs and activities highlighting the unique Art Deco heritage of their city and region. Events will include walking tours, illustrated talks, and social get-togethers at local places of preservation interest.

MORE ON WORLD ART DECO DAY
Activities will culminate on April 28th, the anniversary that commemorates the opening of the 1925 Exposition Internationale Des Arts Decoratifs et Industrials Moderne in Paris. On this special day Members will come together virtually with the help of social media and video streaming to share messages and well wishes with one another.
Events may be in-person or virtual, live or recorded, with each Member deciding what is most appropriate for their Society. ICADS welcomes participation by all Member Societies and Friends around the world. We encourage virtual participation in events via Zoom and other web-based conference applications whenever possible.
Inaugurated in April 2021, World Art Deco Day is intended to promote a spirit of cooperation and community between ICADS Member Societies.
