Art and Design in the Modern Age provides an intriguing overview of The Wolfsonian's exceptional holdings and showcases the museum's collection, which spans the period 1885 to 1945. The nearly 300 works on display provide insight into the ways design has influenced and adapted to the modern world. The installation explores the many focal points of The Wolfsonian's collection, including design-reform movements, architecture, urbanism, industrial design, transportation, world's fairs, advertising, political propaganda, and labor iconography.
Inaugurated in November 1996, this ongoing exhibition is periodically updated.
