Editorial

  • The Scene
    Miami Beach's Wolfsonian Museum is a veritable treasure trove of propaganda and advertising art. The museum was founded in 1986 to house Micky Wolfson's sprawling collection of European and American art and design, from 1885 to 1945. When Wolfson withdrew his financial support of the $70 million collection, Florida International University stepped in to sponsor the museum.

    The Collection
    You'll find a fascinating hodgepodge of paintings, ephemera, furniture, books, prints, architectural models and more. You'll find everything from patriotic posters to Nazi pin cushions to King Farouk of Egypt's match collection. There are several works (some quite unusual) by the great modernists such as Charles Eames, Marcel Duchamp, Isamu Noguchi and members of the Bauhaus school. The museum also hosts temporary and traveling exhibits with broad themes concerning the 19th and 20th centuries.
