ABOUT

We Are The Phoenix Art Deco Society

“It was an age of miracles, it was an age of art, it was an age of excess, and it was an age of satire.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald

The art deco era was a time of stunning architecture, streamlined design, bold fashion, and hot jazz truly exemplified the glamour and sophistication of modern society. More than just a design philosophy, it was a cultural movement in a time of experimentation and innovation. 

The Phoenix Art Deco Society strives to bring that spirit of the art deco era to you.  We capture the vibrancy of the 1920s and 1930s and package it into immersive experiences, educational events, and preservation opportunities. The space the Phoenix Art Deco Society has created in the community is for everyone to celebrate the heart of le style moderne. 

Our nonprofit was founded in September of 2023, and our team of passionate individuals is driven to bring people together to appreciate and learn more about the Art Deco era in our city. We are advocates for the appreciation, understanding, and preservation of Art Deco in Phoenix and worldwide. And we invite you to celebrate that with us. 

The Phoenix Art Deco Society is a not-for-profit organization that is exempt from Federal Income Tax as an organization described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to Phoenix Art Deco Society are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Leadership

Erin Lindsey – President

Erin Lindsey is a native of Arizona and has a deep passion for her hometown. She is dedicated to preserving the culture and history of Phoenix, especially that of the 1920s and 1930s. Her love of Art Deco stems from her appreciation for the bold and liberating fashions of the moderne movement. Over the years, she has been collecting rare vintage pieces from the 20s and 30s, which has developed into an obsession with the architecture, music, dancing, art, and cultural movement of the Art Deco era. Her goal for the Phoenix Art Deco Society is to share that passion with the members, develop relationships with the community, and keep Art Deco alive.

“Modernism means style versus styles” 

Paul Frankl

I live life in the margins of society, and the rules of normal society don’t apply to those who live on the fringe.

Tamara de Lempicka

“The Flapper awoke from her lethargy… put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge, and went into battle… She was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do.”

Zelda Fitzgerald in “Eulogy on the Flapper,” 1922

“The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own, we have no soul of our own civilization.”
