What South Florida cultural institution is eclectic and borders on the eccentric? The Wolfsonian answers its own question as it houses everything from Art Deco household objects to rare books. The institution was founded in 1986 to exhibit, document, and preserve the Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. Collection of Decorative and Propaganda Arts. A decade later it became part of Florida International University. On their Collections page, visors can look through items organized into twelve themes, including Art Nouveau, Colonialism, and World's Fairs and Expeditions. One area that should not be missed is the collection of items related to the Works Progress Administration and the New Deal. Here, visitors can look over hundreds of prints, posters, and original pieces created during this most unique period in America's recent artistic past. Finally, visitors shouldn't neglect the opportunity to craft their own specialized search as they look through this fabulously diverse archive.
