VISIT BY MIAMI AD SCHOOL STUDENTS
During the fall and spring academic semesters, the Wolfsonian-FIU library remains open to scholars and researchers for pre-arranged appointments on Saturdays. This past Saturday was no exception as six Miami Ad School students came to the museum for a self-guided tour of Styled for the Road: the Art of Automobile Design, 1908-1948, followed by a look at some of the automobile advertisements from the “Deco” decades on display in the library foyer, and others housed in our back stacks. The students are working on a project for the automobile-themed 33rd Annual Art Deco Weekend, this coming January 15-17, 2010, and sought inspiration from the Wolfsonian library’s collection of promotional materials. Pictured here are the cover and an interior page spread of a beautiful French Art Deco advertisement for the Renault Monastella.
