EXHIBITION: Art and Design in the Modern Age: Selections from The Wolfsonian Collection

I finally got to see the permanent collection of the Wolfsonian Museum in Miami, Art and Design in the Modern Age -- great fun to see all the tableware, radios, and furniture referencing the look of skyscrapers and ocean liners! The collection contains three hundred works spanning graphics (books, posters, and postcards) decorative arts, architectural models, paintings and sculptures. 

The big blue disc in the middle of the room is a radio;
on the far left is a snazzy vacuum cleaner.
