The exhibition Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties brings together for the first time the work of sixty-eight painters, sculptors, and photographers who explored a new mode of modern realism in the years bounded by the aftermath of the Great War and the onset of the Great Depression. Throughout the 1920s, artists created images of liberated modern bodies and the changing urban-industrial environment with an eye toward ideal form and ordered clarity -- qualities seemingly at odds with a riotous decade best remembered for its flappers and Fords.

Venue Description: Open Wed., Fri.-Sun., 11am-6pm; Thurs., 11am-10pm; First Saturday of each month (except September), 5-11pm. $12; $8, students and seniors (62 & over). Under 19, free (as of 9/3/2014).
