Art Deco Weekend, the annual festival celebrating that eponymous architectural style, Miami Beach's (and Miami's) great collection of deco architecture, and a lot of kitschy Miami history, is here again.

The deco love fest runs through the weekend, complete as always, with an official poster, a street fair on Ocean Drive, lectures, events, and lots of loud, retro clothing making rare appearances from the backs of closets across Miami. The festival's deco-inspired posters, which are always original artistic creations, show just how much Miami's perception of its own unique variety of 1930s and '40s art deco has changed over the years, and even year to year... in effect showing how versatile and ingenious those old designs -- think of the Coast Guard Station in Lummus Park or a streamline modernist house designed for indoor-outdoor subtropical living -- are themselves.
