i really liked the way that the artists expressed what they saw in side of the twenties. showing this is a whole different way of looking at things and being a student this really helps.

I thought it was beautiful and introspective. I appreciated the Gaston Lachaise's sculpture "Torso" which was a representation of his "expansively proportioned wife." It let me see that bodies that are my shape were once considered artistically beautiful.

I particularly enjoyed how much information was given with each work of art, regarding the artist and his/her inspiration. A highly informative, beautifully put together exhibit. Thank you!

I liked seeing what was happening in America on the artistic front as much of what we learn of art in the 20's mostly comes from Europe. It was very interesting and informative.

An unbelievably comprehensive examination of a compelling, yet, for me, little-known era. The variety of objects is staggering and the commentaries are intellectually deep but accessible. A great exhibition.
