The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum offers the fourth segment in its Curatorial Spotlight series with a presentation titled Style and Sound: Art Deco and Jazz in the 1920s. The presentation will take place on April 18, 2017 at 6:00 pm in the Metal Technologies, Inc. Education Center at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, and is given as a tribute to Jazz Appreciation Month.
Art Deco as a physical art form is best exemplified through its lavish and exquisite designs where ‘Form Follows Function’. Jazz in the 1920s, as an abstract form of art, is best exemplified with its varying rhythms and sensual sounds and styles. This presentation will draw parallels between Art Deco and Jazz in terms of their importance in their category of art.
The Curatorial Spotlight Series is provided by the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum as part of their regular admission offerings and is free with museum admission. Presentations occur the third Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm.
