How to Zoom with ADSNY

In light of the rapidly changing situation surrounding COVID-19, the Art Deco Society of New York has suspended all in-person programs and will be offering safe event options for you to enjoy from your own home. 


These web-based presentations will be hosted through Zoom and will each include a live PowerPoint, presented by distinguished experts-––with wonderful images that you will be able to see directly on your computer screen, tablet, or mobile device-––as well as a Q&A session with participants, just like the format of our in-person talks. 

These online events will give those of you who live outside of New York and the United States, the opportunity to participate in ADSNY's rich programming. To learn more about Zoom, please scroll down.

If you have an additional question, that is not addressed below, please check the Zoom Support Page for helpful information and video tutorials or reach out to ADSNY at
