Find Jazz Age L.A. In The Art Decopedia


The Art Deco Society knows how to throw a great party. They bring thousands to dance at their annual Avalon Ball on Catalina Island, host swanky cocktails in historic places events and on February 18th are hosting a casino night at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. They are also involved in preservation issues like the Venice Post Office and the Fairfax Theater, but I was so excited to see that they have now created the Art Decopedia of Los Angeles, a compendium of our greatest monuments to jazz age opulence. Just type in a street name or building type and you can visit the Crossroads of the World, the Firestone building on La Brea and little seen gems all over the city. Take a virtual tour and add your own entries. Maybe you know of a hidden corner of Inglewood or Altadena that’s not in there. Feed the knowledge tree and enjoy this cruise around old L.A.
