After nearly a decade of advocacy the Chicago Motor Club is well on the way to a sensitive restoration and adaptation thanks to our tireless effort to achieve landmark protection for the building and to support responsible stewardship. We continue to closely monitor threatened buildings and structures like the Ashland Avenue Bridge, a funeral home on the South side, and others on our ever growing preservation watchlist.


We published two wonderful issues of our ever popular CADS Magazine and continue to expand the catalog of the Chicago Art Deco Survey Project. Even more exciting, we have taken that information from the Survey and have started the editorial process for the Book Project which will help document and share our rich Chicagoland Art Deco legacy. And we supplement these initiatives with numerous educational lectures on Art Deco objects, design, and influential people of the era. 


As a member, you’ll have the opportunity to socialize and discuss your favorite aspects of Art Deco with over 500 associates from Chicago and across the United States. Enjoy exclusive access to fabulous buildings, private collections, member socials, and other exciting events including tours and lectures featuring expert speakers and authors throughout the calendar year.
