The Arlington Museum of Art put on a jazzy party inspired by one of New York’s most famous nightclubs: The Cotton Club, which was founded in 1923 during Prohibition. The June 14 party was held in conjunction with two of the museum’s current exhibits — “Harlem Renaissance” and “William H. Johnson: An American Modern.” Guests were encouraged to come in period costumes, and the live music was provided by musicians who covered tunes by Roaring Twenties favorites, such as Josephine Baker and Jimmy Durante.
