    Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau

    Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Closes July 31

    Organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Alphonse Mucha: Master of Art Nouveau includes more than 70 original works by the artist many

    consider the creator of the Art Nouveau style. Vintage lithographs, including some unique proof copies, original drawings and paintings,

    books and advertising ephemera, make up one of the largest private

    collections of Mucha's work. This exhibition shows Mucha at the height of his career in Paris during the years 1890-1910. His designs for

    posters, calendars, books and advertising labels circulated widely throughout Europe and America, and his Art Nouveau style dominated

    visual culture and graphic design for years.

    The exhibition is drawn from the holdings of the Dhawan Collection, Los Angeles, which is one of the largest and finest collections of Alphonse

    Mucha's work in the United States.

    Billboard images (above) feature details of the following works by Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) from the Dhawan Collection: Monaco,

    Monte-Carlo, 1897, color lithograph on paper; Salon des Cent, XXme Exposition, 1897, color lithograph on paper; and Job, 1896, color

  • lithograph on paper mounted on linen.

    Glenn Miller Orchestra Glen Echo

    July 30

    Just saying the "Glenn Miller Orchestra" immediately conjures up images of the Big Band Era. Since the time he formed his own orchestra in 1937

    until his untimely disappearance over the English Channel in 1944, the Glenn Miller Orchestra provided the music that was the backbone of

    the Lindy Hop era. Classic songs like Tuxedo Junction, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, Sunrise Serenade, Pennsylvania 6-5000, In the Mood, and

    more, will never go out of style.

     Saturday, July 30, 2016

    Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park 7300 MacArthur Boulevard, Glen Echo, Maryland 20812

    1920s Garden Party -- Chatham

    As part of the National Park Service's Centennial celebrations,

    Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park is excited to host a "Roaring Twenties" garden party and jazz concert on August 6, 2016.

    The afternoon will feature 1920s era cars and living historians dressed in period clothes, walking tours that explore the founding of the park in

    1927 and the revitalization of Chatham in the 1920s, including the creation of its famed gardens, and other activities. Pack a dinner in your

    own basket to join us on the grounds for a picnic, leading up to a concert from 6:00-8:00 p.m. featuring the Capital Focus Jazz Band from

    Washington, DC.

    This program is free and open to the public. 1920s-style costumes are

    encouraged! Bring a lawn chair for the concert, and pack your own picnic dinner and blanket to bridge the afternoon programs with the

    evening concert. A prize will be awarded for the best picnic basket setup!

    Congress created Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park in 1927, at the height of the "Roaring Twenties." The garden party on

    August 6 recalls those days.


    Deco Japan: 1920-1945 June 11 - December 31, 2016

  • The style that came to be known as art deco, which flourished from the 1920s to 1940s, was a vivid reflection of the modern era and the vitality

    of the machine age. Between the wars, as normalcy returned to politics, jazz music blossomed, and the flapper redefined the modern woman, art

    deco left its mark on every form of visual art.

    Originating in Europe, the new art form, characterized by rectilinear

    shapes, geometric patterns, and bold colors, traveled the world as an ambassador for modernism and style. Deco Japan, 1920-1945, a special

    exhibition on view at Hillwood beginning in June 2016, will explore how the Japanese interpreted the style and transformed it through their own

    rich art and craft traditions. The art deco creations of Japan are vivid translations of both tradition and innovation-a visual record of the

    artistic explosion that ushered Japan from its conventional artistic format into the Modern era.

    Featuring a wide range of media-sculpture, painting, prints, ceramics,

    lacquerware, jewelry, textiles, furniture, and graphic ephemera-this traveling exhibition brings Japanese art deco to Washington for the first

    time. It builds on the passion that Hillwood founder Marjorie

    Merriweather Post had for decorative art, focusing on her most transformative era, when she epitomized the flapper lifestyle and

    developed her own taste for finely-crafted objects. Displayed among multiple buildings upon the 25-acre campus, Deco Japan will also bring

    focus to the Japanese-style Garden, one of Hillwood's most beloved features.

    Queen Mary Art Deco Festival

    August 19-21, 2016 Long Beach, California

  • "Cruise" back in time to the Golden Age of Travel for a weekend aboard

    one of the greatest Maritime Monarchs in history. Drink, dine, dance, and discover the opulence of this by-gone era immersed among the

    largest collection of Art Deco in the World.

    Art plays a prominent role in the décor of the ship. Further enhanced by

    the use of over 50 different types of woods from all over the world, The

    Queen Mary earned her nickname, the "Ship of Woods."

    With elaborate murals, paintings, sculptures and wood carvings found throughout the ship, it's no wonder she is widely considered one of the

    best examples and landmarks of Art Deco style in the world.

    Pack your vintage duds and celebrate the luxury and grandeur immortalized in F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary classic The Great Gatsby at

    the 12th Annual Art Deco Festival presented by the Queen Mary in association with the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles.
