Modern Aspirations: Art Deco from the Collection

The style of visual arts, architecture, and design known as Art Deco first appeared in France just before World War I and flourished through the "Roaring Twenties" and up until the beginning of WWII. It emphasized streamlined form in keeping with a "modern" age of speed and rapid advancements in the design of buildings, furniture, jewelry, fashion, cars, movie theaters, trains, ocean liners, and everyday objects. It was also the style of the Jazz Age, Flappers, and Prohibition as a new freewheeling culture emerged and women were allowed more comfortable clothing such as menswear and danced in short dresses and cut their hair short. This exhibition brings paintings, sculpture, graphic, and decorative arts together from the collection to look at the many ways this style manifested itself in Western culture nearly 100 years ago.
