1988 Art Deco Festival

 1988 Miami Herald article entitled “Deco fest to move; Construction forcing event to find new site”. Because of Ocean Drive reconstruction in 1988 between 5th and 15th Streets, MDPL had to move the Art Deco Festival to another location. They chose to hold it in the Bass Museum Area. At that time, preservationists were campaigning to get the area designated as their next local historic district. Photograph of the 1988 Art Deco Festival held on Collins Avenue between 19th and 21st Street up to Washington Avenue.
