If anything could be the "bee's knees" and "the cat's pajamas" at the same time, it would be "1920s: The Golden Age," an exhibit that features archival documents from the 1920s, alongside artwork inspired by the era. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Arts Clayton gallery and the National Archives at Atlanta.
It premiered on Thursday at the National Archives, located in Morrow.
Artists from throughout the state contributed 61 different pieces of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art to the exhibit, all with a 1920s theme. Alongside the artwork are archival videos, Census records and draft cards of Clayton residents from the 1920s, mug shots of notorious bootleggers, newspaper clippings, movie posters, and other documents illustrating the "Roaring 20s."
The exhibit will be on display at the National Archives from now until May 15. For more information, call (770) 968-2100.
