Share Your Jazz Age–Inspired Style with #CMAJazzAge

What does the term "Jazz Age" evoke in your mind? Perhaps it conjures images of women in flapper dresses drinking gin rickeys and dancing the Charleston. Or maybe it’s an image of a Gatsby-esque character walking into a lavish home filled with Art Deco–style furniture. Whatever you imagine, there’s no denying that people have long been fascinated with America in the 1920s. Northeast Ohio was a Jazz Age epicenter. Signs of this era are visible in historic Cleveland architecture and neighborhoods, and even found in your own homes, attics, and photo albums.

To that end, we’d like to see exactly what “Jazz Age” means to you. As the CMA prepares to open The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s, please share images of your favorite 1920s-inspired design, decorative arts, and fashion by posting a photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and use the hashtag #CMAJazzAge. Search #CMAJazzAge to see behind-the-scenes images as we install the exhibition, and learn fun facts. When you visit the museum, be sure to snap a selfie with your favorite Jazz Age object, and share it with #CMAJazzAge to help spread the word!
