Event description

Description

Over afternoon tea, enjoy an insiders’ perspective of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s. Join the exhibition’s curators Sarah D. Coffin and Emily M. Orr, who will be in conversation with design historian Pauline Metcalf about the pioneering role of American women in the era’s new profession of interior design. Many innovations of the Jazz Age involved women—as designers, pioneers of interior decoration, artists, consumers, patrons, department store design directors, and journalists covering the arts. A gallery tour follows.

Ticket price includes refreshments and museum admission.
