  The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s. We follow the Jazz Age from Paris to the United States. The first major museum exhibition to focus on American taste during the creative explosion of the 1920s, The Jazz Age offers a multi-media experience of more than 400 examples of interior design, industrial design, decorative art, jewelry, fashion, and architecture, as well as related music and film. Giving full expression to the decade's diversity and dynamism, The Jazz Age defines the American spirit of the period. Our guide will be Sarah D. Coffin, Curator and Head of the Product Design and Decorative Arts Department at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, where she has organized numerous exhibitions, most recently as curator in charge of the Permanent Collection Floor exhibitions for the Museum's reopening. Limited to 25 participants.
