Blue Revel was inspired by visits to Cleveland's Globe Theatre on Woodland Avenue, where a group of faculty members from the Cleveland School of Art had rented a box. Schreckengost exhibited this painting in the 1931 May Show at the Cleveland Museum of Art, alongside his Cocktails and Cigarettes punch bowl.
