This exhibit is now closed, but you can experience it any time through the Cocktails, Lipstick & Jazz Virtual Tour.




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. Names of the sport heroes still echo today: Walter Johnson, Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey and Man O’ War. 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.” We will exhibit a cross-section of the period with fashions from Paris, speakeasy cocktails, red hot jazz and weekend recreations. 

Don’t miss this exciting exhibit, that shows life in the 1920s like you’ve never seen it before!
