The Roaring (and the Quiet) 1920s

May 7, 2021–August 15, 2021

The 1920s were a tumultuous decade of remarkable highs and crushing economic lows. In America, women voted, jazz flourished, Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic and alcohol sales ceased. America experienced unprecedented economic growth, and social and intellectual energy while public enthusiasm soared … until the Crash of 1929. This exhibition draws on the DAI collection to look at artistic achievements during this dramatic decade.
