NPR's "Weekend Edition" takes a look at the Rhode Island School of Design's Museum of Art's show Cocktail Culture.

“Cocktail Culture traces the influence of the cocktail hour on fashion and design in the 20th century, from the Flapper of Prohibition to the ultra feminine dresses of post-WWII to the spangled pantsuit of the disco era, and the accompanying designs for shakers and glasses. The exhibition offers perspective on the current resurgence of interest in all things cocktail,” says Ann Woolsey, Interim Director.
