    Columbia Museum of Art Brief Summary of the Exhibition:

    This beautiful and fascinating exhibition tells the story of the astonishing innovation that can result from a clash between the old and the new. See the vast contradictions of this epic era as geisha become flappers and ancient origami cranes turn into sleek, gold statuettes. Japan and the Jazz Age features a dynamic range of compelling objects created in the Art Deco style including kimonos, furniture, sculpture and evocative ephemera such as sheet music, posters, postcards, prints, and photography that guide visitors through this rich period in world history and visual culture.
