Project Description

The exhibition, Zelda Fitzgerald: Choreography in Color, opened in October 2011 and closed in January 2012 and was held at the Evergreen Museum and Library in Baltimore. It explored Zelda Fitzgerald’s artistic production; both its theoretical applications of color and movement, and Zelda’s search for an independent artistic language as a way for defining her self, especially as a woman. The exhibition also explored the role of Zelda Fitzgerald as an artist in a period of transition for women from traditional domestic values to modern independence and the empty promise of freedom that “flapping” seemed to offer the young Zelda. This exhibition analyzed the importance of Georgia O’Keeffe and other women artists and writers in the realization of Zelda’s artistic goals.
