+ 5: Recent Acquisitions from The Wolfsonian Collection
On the occasion of its fifteenth anniversary, The Wolfsonian proudly presents +5: Recent Acquisitions from The Wolfsonian Collection, showcasing the dynamic growth of the collection over the past five years. The exhibition features objects acquired through donation or purchase since the museum’s previous anniversary show, X: A Decade of Collecting.
The continual development of this extraordinary collection is indebted to the many collectors who share the museum’s passion for the art and design of everyday life. Their gifts strengthen and broaden the collection’s core themes of design reform, urbanism, travel and transportation, advertising, and political propaganda.
+5 highlights only a small portion of new collection holdings and includes fine and decorative arts, architectural elements, books, posters, and printed ephemera. Additional recent acquisitions may be found in Art and Design in the Modern Age on the fifth floor.
