Flapper fashion at Allentown Art Museum

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

Step back into the age of Prohibition and flapper days at the Allentown Art Museum.

You can take a trip back to the 1920s with one of the Allentown Art Museum's newest exhibits. "Fabulous Flappers: Fashion from the Ellie Laubner Collection" looks more like a runway show than an art gallery. It features evening and casual dresses, jewelry, bathing suits, accessories, and more from the 1920s.

The other newest exhibit at the Allentown Art Museum will take you on a trip to Haiti.

Haitian Art from the Rodale Family Collection is on display in the Rodale Gallery. The paintings are vibrant and bright, despite the poverty and despair often associated with Haiti.

Both exhibits will be up until April 14 at the museum, located at 31 N. Fifth Street.
