The Wolfsonian–FIU is a treasure trove of materials from the period 1850–1950, gathered from near and far. From the “frozen fountain” that once served as the facade of the Norris Theater in Pennsylvania to a Miami River bridge tender’s house, many of the architectural features in the building have been repurposed to serve a new function. In this lecture, Wolfsonian curator Lea Nickless will delve into the stories of these design elements (and collection objects) found in and around 1001 Washington Avenue—where did they come from, and how did they end up in Miami Beach?
Organized with Miami Design Preservation League and presented as part of Art Deco Weekend.
