THE FRIST ART MUSEUM
Nashville, Tennessee + Online Events | https://fristartmuseum.org/exhibition/american-art-deco-designing-for-the-people-1918-1939/
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Appropriately presented within the Frist’s own art deco interior during the museum’s 20th anniversary year, this exhibition offers an in-depth examination of an international style that manifested stateside in decorative arts, fine arts, architecture, and design during the 1920s and 1930s. Featuring approximately 140 objects, American Art Deco explores the movement between 1918 and 1939 and highlights not only the glamour and optimism of the 1920s, but also the impact of the Great Depression in the 1930s. An array of works, from a stunning 1925 René Lalique glass vase to a 1930s Grant Wood painting of a picturesque Iowa farm town, will be displayed in vignettes alongside immersive elements, including jazz music, Hollywood film clips, and custom interactives.
Organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri, and Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska
