Beyond the Glamour: Considering Race and Inequality in an Era of Opulence
Sat, 12/16
The Jazz Age features all that glitters and shines in an era of opulence, but racial tensions, class strife, and women’s calls for political recognition also helped make the 1920s roar. Discover how race and inequality while not seemingly present on the surface of these artworks, peek through in unexpected ways.

Wed, 12/13
Hear a dialogue between Cleveland Museum of Art curator of decorative art and design Stephen Harrison and curator of photography Barbara Tannenbaum as they explore common themes and overlapping strands of history in these two exhibitions.

Yoga at the Museum
Sat, 12/16
Each month, explore a different theme and exercise your mind with a tour of the galleries by museum staff, then get your body moving with yoga in the atrium led by instructors from the Atma Center.

Film: Rebels on Pointe
Fri, 12/15, Sun, 12/17
The first documentary about Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the all-male drag ballet company that travels the world spoofing classical dance, explores such universal themes as dreams, identity, and family.

The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s
The first major museum exhibition to focus on American taste in art and design during the dynamic years of the 1920s and early 1930s. Due to the popularity of this exhibition, entrance tickets may be sold out. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
