Art Deco in Washington and Baltimore

Apr 17, 2014

The white-collar New Deal capital and the blue-collar industrial port city are 40 miles apart but are rich with examples of the bold and distinctive art deco style in architecture and ornamentation. Richard Striner, professor of history at Washington College and Midday contributor, and architectural historian Melissa Blair have collaborated on a new book, "Washington and Baltimore Art Deco: A Design History of Neighboring Cities." They join us for the hour, ahead of their Thursday night presentation at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
