This weekend, from Friday January 18th, to Sunday January 20th is the annual, South Beach Art Deco Weekend!
"ART DECO WEEKEND sees world-famous Ocean Drive even more energized with 300,000 visitors, checking out the local establishments and hundreds of vendors exhibiting their wares. Whether Artists, Craftsmen, Chefs, Bartenders, Car Collectors, or any variety of Art Deco Retailers, all showing the best they have to offer. ALL HIGHLIGHTED BY FRIDAY'S ALWAYS-POPULAR ART DECO PARADE.
• Throughout the weekend the LESLIE HOTEL FACADE, as it did in 2012, will serve as a screen for a 30-minute 3D Mapping Project ("FACES OF THE DECADE") by Alternative Media International (AMI).
• Four Art Deco related movies will be shown on the lawn in Lummus Park at 8th Street. Scheduled for this year's ART DECO FILM FESTIVAL are: "SOME LIKE IT HOT" (1959), "THE ARTIST" (2011), "THE GREAT GATSBY" (1949), and "MIDNIGHT IN PARIS" (2011). One of the most compelling displays at Art Deco Weekend 2012 was Alternative Media International's (AMI) 3D Mapping project projected onto the facade of the LESLIE HOTEL. The group returns this year with "FACES OF THE DECADE," a piece focused on the stars of vintage cinema, set to remixed Art Deco Era Jazz."
