Sacramento Art Deco Society


Welcome to the SADS Website

The Sacramento Art Deco Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1991, dedicated to preserving all aspects of the Art Deco period. Our aim is to raise awareness and appreciation of Art Deco. Our activities center around the preservation, education, history and entertainment of this unique era. SADS supports new and exciting events to keep the awareness of Art Deco alive.

SADS is a member of the International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS). We participate in projects supporting the preservation of 1920s-1940s buildings in Sacramento and the surrounding areas. SADS presents Preservation Awards to deserving person(s) and/or agencies.
