Beaded fringe bounced to the syncopated sounds of jazz, while illegal hooch sloshed in long stemmed glasses. The bull market prevailed and it didn’t matter what you bought; stocks only went up, up, up. On the surface, it was a glittering moment in time captured by F. Scott Fitzgerald in stories like The Great Gatsby and “Bernice Bobs Her Hair.” This exhibition will transport you to the 1920s, where you’ll discover beaded fashions from Paris, speakeasy cocktail parties, red hot jazz, and weekend recreations. Don’t miss this chance to experience the Roaring Twenties and all its dazzling extravagance!

Open October 15 through January 15, Thursday to Sunday, 12:00 to 4:00
