Images of the Jazz Age

“The Roaring Twenties” are best remembered for outrageous fashion, revolutionary jazz music and unprecedented new freedoms for women. This program captures the spirit of the twenties by illuminating the connections between music, dance, fashion and social change in what came to be known as the Jazz Age. Slides will be shown of Harlem Renaissance paintings, Art Deco sculpture, fashions and fashion accessories, and magazine illustrations and advertisements. Other topics include artists such as Archibald Motley, Jr., and John Held, Jr. and images of the newly liberated women of the 1920s-known as flappers.
