Still Roaring

Despite closing in on a century of separation, the culture and industry that defined the 1920s has helped it to remain one of the more celebrated decades in American history. This sentiment is captured in the Cleveland Museum of Art's Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties.

"One of the things that really distinguishes this exhibition is that it combines painting, sculpture and photography," says deputy director and chief curator Griff Mann. Opening July 1, the exhibit features work by 67 artists, including Ansel Adams, Edward Hopper and Georgia O'Keeffe.

"There is certainly an aesthetic that emerges that seems to be quintessentially American," says Mann. "It's urban, it's sophisticated, it's intimately tied with this kind of coexistence between industry and commerce and a new-found sense of confidence as a nation."
