Thinking about Art Deco, Summer 2016
I like Art Deco all ways. I like the early, swirly, patterns in vibrant colors and muted browns. I like silver and sharp edges, but I like round edges more. I think the bathroom at Radio City Music Hall is actually heaven. I spent some of the best nights of my life sitting at the back bar at the Delano, and I’ve acquired my own collection of Deco “capsules”—objects that capture the social, cultural and artistic underpinnings of this diverse and enduring style called Art Deco.
Here are some snaps…of recent jaunts to New Orleans, Milwaukee, St. Paul, New York and, of course, my beloved Pittsburgh.
