Please join MDPL in welcoming our Art Deco brethren from New Zealand. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the sunny coast city of Napier, New Zealand. This gem of a city is often compared to a slice of the Mediterranean Rivera down under.
Napier, like Miami Beach, is blessed with ocean breezes, swaying palms and a wealth of Art Deco architecture ... It is often refered to as the "Mediterranean Riviera."
Ms. Jackson is the General Manager of the Art Deco Trust, Napier’s preservation society, and she will discuss her home, her organization, Art Deco architecture and style, and Napier’s own Art Deco Weekend. and her lovely city.
After listening to her description of Napier, you might very well look to book the next flight to New Zealand!
