What can a 1930s aluminum cocktail shaker reveal about history? Economics? National identity? Plenty. The Wolfsonian-FIU reinvents the museum experience by showcasing everyday and fine-arts treasures in exhibitions that ask compelling questions about the hows and whys of early modern design.
For your safety, we have installed art and objects on the ground floor to make our collection accessible without compromising visitor health. Each installation along the one-way, guided route displays modern-age works that address the themes of our present—economic catastrophe and recovery, protest against racist violence, and public response to epidemic disease.
Please make sure to check the museum's hours in advance to verify that the museum is open on the day you wish to visit. www.wolfsonian.org
