Roaring Twenties: The Life and Style of Marjorie Merriweather Post

June 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - January 9, 2022 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

Opening June 12, 2021

Explore the Jazz Age through the lens of an icon. Hillwood founder Marjorie Merriweather Post was a prominent tastemaker during the era known as the Roaring Twenties. One hundred years later, Hillwood celebrates Post’s effect on the period—her impeccable attire, impressive art collection, and sumptuous design that made her one of the most influential women of the 1920s. This was a seminal decade for Post, as she developed into the icon we know her as today—a collector, philanthropist, humanitarian, and businesswoman, determined to do good and use her means to benefit others. The decorative objects and glamorous gowns on display in this exhibition reveal a legendary lifestyle and the range of art and style that embodied the essence of the Roaring Twenties. From globally influenced pieces to her splendid apparel for glamorous events and philanthropic fundraisers to her residences and furnishings, these items from Post’s incredible life will demonstrate the allure, excitement, and international nature of this remarkable decade.
