About The Event

The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s celebrates an era of prosperity when the United States became a leading marketplace for decorative art, fashion, music, and architecture. This prosperous decade gave way to the Great Depression shortly after the stock market crashed in 1929. From Riches to Rags: American Photography in the Depression documents photographers’ responses to the social upheaval and economic distress that characterized American life in the 1930s. Hear a dialogue between Cleveland Museum of Art curator of decorative art and design Stephen Harrison and curator of photography Barbara Tannenbaum as they explore common themes and overlapping strands of history in these two exhibitions.  Free, registration required.
