Sigal Museum in Easton presents Exhibit now through August 6, 2018
Welcome to 1920 and 30s America: The Lehigh Valley is roaring with red light districts, illegal underground speakeasies, and organized crime. Immigrants, women, and children are finding work in the booming steel and textile industries across the area. The modern era is on the horizon.
In a bold reaction against tradition, the Art Deco movement emerges to the forefront of design. It is a grand symbol of change in an increasingly mechanized world. Architecture, furniture, apparel, graphic design, cars, trains, ocean liners, and jewelry all begin to reflect the growth and change of a young 20th-century America.
