The Noble Experiment

Whatever happened to the Prohibition?

When the prohibition era began, a few wise observers predicted it would not go so well. While noble in motif it did not last, leaving behind a legacy of the Roaring Twenties.

Joy Mardini Design Gallery would like to delve into the spirit of the time and knock on the doors of the prohibition’s worst kept secret; the Speakeasies.

e exhibition will unveil a collection of objects that re ect the hidden vices of the time. Celebrating the “heroes” of the underground, the Bootleggers, the Rumrunners and the Moonshiners. In the 1920s everyone wanted to drink, cut their hair and be somebody and not much has changed since then.
