About this artwork
South Miami is probably the best example of Art Deco in the country. Of course there's the great hotels along the waterfront, but behind those there are humble, unassuming apartments in the Art Deco tradition. The Deco area extends for blocks and in between the later apartments there are Art Deco gems. If you're old enough to remember the TV show Miami Vice, you might recall the early episodes where they ran around South Miami and paid homage to the style and colors of Art Deco.
