The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s

From April 7-August 20, 2017, the first major museum exhibition to focus on American taste in design and art during the creative explosion of the 1920s, The Jazz Age explores the significant impact of European influences, the rapid growth of cities, avant-garde artistic movements, new social mores and the role of technology. Seeking to define the American spirit of the period, The Jazz Age will be a multi-media experience of more than 400 examples of interior design, decorative art, jewelry, fashion, art, architecture, music, and film. Co-organized by Cooper Hewitt and the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Jazz Age gives full expression to the diversity and dynamism of this brilliant decade.

The exhibition will feature some pieces from the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and jewels from Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels.
