Wolfsonian - A Museum of Modern Art and Design Picture



The Wolfsonian was founded in 1986 to exhibit, document, and preserve the Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. Collection of Decorative and Propaganda Arts, a vast assemblage of objects that includes furniture, paintings, books, prints, industrial and decorative art objects, and ephemera. In 1997 it became a division of Florida International University (FIU), when Wolfson donated his collection and museum facility to the university, the largest gift ever contributed to a public university in Florida. The museum explores through its exhibitions and special programs the critically important role of design at the height of the industrial age (1885-1945) in the context of social, political, and technological issues. The Wolfsonian-FIU is a museum located in the heart of historic Miami Beach, within easy walking distance of the world-famous Art Deco hotels. Its fascinating collection of objects from the modern era (1885-1945) focuses on how art and design shape and reflect the human experience. The museum further engages the visitor by complementing its collection with thought-provoking discussions of the context and connection among its objects.
