The American Decorative Arts Forum invites Decophiles to this lecture by Stephen Harrison, Curator of Decorative Art and Design at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Based on the critically acclaimed catalogue and exhibition The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s, Stephen Harrison’s lavishly illustrated talk will explore American taste during the exhilarating 1920s and early 1930s. In these years the United States became the leading marketplace for innovative architecture, interior decoration, decorative arts, fashion, and music. Through a rich array of extraordinary works in jewelry, fashion, and decorative arts, featuring the people and events that punctuated the era, Mr. Harrison will present the dazzling world of flappers and dandies in all its dizzying glory.
