Art Deco Festival on Queen Mary

Here’s something for those who live in southern California and love Art Deco. The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles is holding it’s Fifth Annual Queen Mary Art Deco Festival over Labor Day weekend. It’s a little pricey at $650 per couple (only $464 for one person), but how can you put a price on this sort of thing? For those not in the know, the Queen Mary is decorated with Art Deco styling throughout.

The shindig begins Friday, September 4 with cocktails at the Verandah Grill aboard the Queen Mary and continues throughout the weekend with tours, shows, lectures and a dinner (probably not rubber chicken).

More information is available here: Art Deco Festival

It takes place at the RMS Queen Mary, 1126 Queen’s Highway, Long Beach, CA 90802.

    I do like Art Deco but I think I’ll save the money and just go look at the Crysler Building tomorrow.

  2. Jeff Meyerson says:

    That should be Chrysler, of course.

  3. Either way, it’s a great building. I / we won’t be going to the Queen Mary this weekend, too hot here, too expensive, things are too smoky here (we’ve got ash flakes floating down outside). But I have been to the ship and it is worth a visit, some stunning stuff. Also worth seeing in the L.A. area is the Bradbury Building, an Italian Renaissance type place with incredible ironwork. BTW, the architect of the Bradbury Building, George Wyman, was Forry Ackerman’s grandfather.
