ART DECO
This popular early 20th century style, synonymous with the Jazz Age, has been described as having one foot in the past and one foot in the future. Its sleek appearance foretells the debut of Modernism while its use of Mayan and Aztec motifs echoes the past. Among Philadelphia’s outstanding examples featured on this walk is the flamboyant WCAU Building on the 1600 block of Chestnut Street, now home to the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

Meet at the entrance of Liberty Place on 17th and Chestnut Streets (map).

Free for children 10 and under accompanied by an adult.

Space is limited. Advance registration strongly recommended.
