Art Deco Treasures: The New York Public Library

Such popular New York City landmarks as the Chrysler Building, Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center epitomize the rich history and legacy of Art Deco, a decorative style that captured the carefree modernist spirit of the 1920s and 1930s. The video, narrated by Paula Baxter, Curator of the Art & Architecture Collection, and Clayton Kirking, Chief of Art Information Resources, examines the historic design trend that continues to inspire fashion design and the arts today. The video also serves as a complement to the Humanities and Social Sciences Library exhibit Art Deco Design: Rhythm and Verve, currently running until January 11, 2009.
