I'm always on the lookout for new places to go and see great art. I found out about the Wilfsonion Museum in Miami Beach just the other day and I had to share it with you.
The Wilfsonion Florida International University Museum in Miami Beach, Florida is one of the world's leading modern art museums, specializing in the period from 1885-1945. It also has the largest collection of art from the British Arts and Crafts Movement outside of England.
The Wilfsonian was founded in 1986 to house the art collection of Mitchell Wolfson Jr. The building and art collection were donated to Florida International University in 1997. The museum is filled with a tremendous variety of art objects, ranging from political propaganda from Mussolini's regime, to beautiful works from the Art Nouveau period.
This is one of those places I plan to visit the next time we go to Florida!
