Barbara Baer Capitman Memorial



Barbara's Crusade

Barbara Capitman is credited with saving much of Miami Beach's Art Deco District from the wrecking ball. Her campaign to draw attention to the Beach's unique collection of buildings, constructed in the years following the disastrous 1926 hurricane, resulted in the creation of the first historic preservation district on the Beach. Barbara worked with designer Leonard Horowitz to create a color palette used to paint the buildings to highlight their distinctive architectural and design features.
