The Delight Is In The Details

The Chicago Tribune moved an article late last week about the newly revived Chicago Art Deco Society.  It’s a group of people trying to preserve what little Art Deco installations still exist in the city.

Chicago is more of an Art Moderne metropolis, or at least it would have been if Maria Mies Ludwig Mies van der Rohe hadn’t gotten in the way.  But there are still pockets of Deco delight here and there to behold.

And since the Tribune didn’t see fit to include a link to the organization’s web site, we will: The Chicago Art Deco Society .
