“The SEDUCTIVE ART DECO of Uptown Oakland”
at "Nerd Nite"
Nerd Nite East Bay on Monday, June 24th
Show is at Club 21 at 2111 Franklin in Uptown Oakland, two blocks from 19th St. BART.
Club 21 Doors and Drinks at 7PM, Talks Begin at 7:30PM
Three talks will be given, one will be presented by Therese Poletti about Uptown #ArtDeco in #Oakland
Faced with the aftermath of the #1929 stock market crash, a small group of businesses hustled to bring optimism back to Oakland, constructing some of California's most beautiful Art Deco buildings in Uptown.
Five of these buildings, including the I. Magnin Department Store, the #Paramount , and the buildings of #MaryBowles continue to seduce the street going public much as they were designed to do in the mid-#1930s . See how bright one mile of neon tubing can be, discover how Art Deco and the #Moderne style came to be valued as an integral part of a vibrant modern city, and learn to appreciate #UptownOakland 's irreplaceable architectural gems!

Great idea! Vintage hairstyles can seem daunting until you have someone show you the ropes. Get in a few practice sessions before the #artdecosocietyofcalifornia Gatsby Summer Afternoon on Sunday, September 8th!
