Bootleggers flooded cities with prohibited booze, flappers danced to jazz, and workers erected bungalows and Mediterranean Revival-style suburban homes in Florida in the 1920s. But the experiences of riotous intemperate outlaws, dance champions, and sprawling suburbs was not the end-all and be-all of Florida’s first modern decade. Florida’s Jim Crow system was violently enforced, and a fundamentalist Christian religious revival movement swept the state during the decade. In short, Florida had a lot going on in the 1920s.
Decade of Change: Florida in the 1920s offers a glimpse of the fashion, music, architecture, social movements, and politics that defined Florida during the decade. By the time you get to the end of this exhibition, you will definitely “Know Your Onions” – at least when it comes to Florida in the 1920s. So stop stalling! “Get a Wiggle On” and check out the show!
On exhibit Nov. 4 – July 14
