Ecoutez, S’il-Vous Plait

America may be the place where jazz was born, but in no way did jazz remain a strictly American phenomenon. The Smithsonian’s touring exhibit “The Jazz Age in Paris: 1914-1940” explores the effect jazz had on Paris and its people after the first World War. Through an original film, photography and other materials, the exhibition offers a perspective on the period in Europe and America, explaining the artistic and intellectual environment on both sides of the Atlantic. The exhibit is currently on display until January 4th, 2001 in Glendale, Arizona and Lexington, Kentucky. From January 18th to March 1st, the exhibit will be in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Baltimore, Maryland. Exhibition locations are local public universities or college libraries.
