WANTED: Preservation Award Nominees
The Sacramento Art Deco Society endeavors to bestow Preservation Awards to honor the preservation of buildings, art and culture from the Art Deco era. An award may also recognize preservation efforts outside of the Sacramento metropolitan area. Past award winners reflect a mix of public and private buildings, as well as individuals who have preserved the art and culture of the era.
We also appreciate updates on any of our former award winners. We are always looking for nominees, so keep your eyes open throughout the year for candidates.
The Board of Directors needs to know what is distinctive about your nominee so please include any and all information that you can find:
- Short biography or history: If it is a person or organization that you are nominating.
- History of a building: Who built it and when? Are there other works by the architect? Did the building host any special events? Opening night?
