Just in time for all of the costume parties to begin, the Cleveland Museum has an exciting new exhibit beginning this Saturday. From September 30th 2017 through January 14th 2018, The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s will be open to the public. As described by the Museum’s event page, the exhibit
“will be the first major museum exhibition to focus on American taste in art and design during the dynamic years of the 1920s and early 1930s. After the First World War, American money and culture helped transform the global marketplace. The United States became the leading marketplace for innovative architecture, interior decoration, decorative art, fashion, music, and film. With the map of Europe redrawn and social mores redefined, creative influences merged. Talent and craftsmanship, urbanity and experimentation flowed back and forth across the Atlantic with an influx of European émigré designers coming to America and a rush of American creative talent traveling and studying abroad. Against a backdrop of traditional historicist styles, a new language of design emerged to define an era of innovation and modernity—the Jazz Age—capturing the pulse and rhythm of the American spirit.”
Psst! Make sure to grab a bite to eat or a drink at one of the many Uptown restaurants before walking over to University Circle. Not hungry? Take a moment by the Museum’s pond or wander some of the other Museums in the area. Enjoy this Summer like weather before it gets chilly!
