Welcome to our newly formed Chicago Art Deco Society meetup group!
CADS was formed in 1982 as a not for profit organization devoted to preserving all things Deco. It is a community of members that celebrate the unique aesthetic of the Interwar Period including fine and decorative arts, architecture and fashion that defined the elegant Art Deco and Streamline Moderne era through Social Events, Historic Preservation, and Educational Lectures.
Get to know more about us and our current members at upcoming socials, events, lectures, preservation drives, and through our facebook page:
And if you like what you see, considering joining CADS beyond the meetup group with a yearly membership which includes a subscription to our fantastic bi-annual magazine publication and discounts to our monthly socials and lectures.
We're also continually looking for motivated volunteers to help suggest and put together events, research preservation topics and grants, and generate eye catching graphics for our website and promotional materials. Details for membership and volunteers are on our website:
Greetings Flappers and Dappers!
