Miami Design Preservation League was the first Art Deco Society in the world. Back in 1970s South Beach, when MDPL’s founders fought against all odds to save the Art Deco architecture from demolition, few could imagine the impact their activism would have on Miami Beach’s future. Thanks to their vision and passion, on May 14th, 1979, the Art Deco District was designated a historic district by the National Register of Historic Places. Since then, every element of South Beach’s success story can be traced back to this defining moment. The League’s ongoing efforts include government and community advocacy, tours, educational programs, events (including the annual Art Deco Weekend), exhibits, lecture and film series, plus national and international outreach. Today, MDPL continues to champion the legacy of its founders, with vigilance and dedication via its mission to preserve, protect and promote the Art Deco District.www.mdpl.org
