Sinuous Lines: Art Nouveau from the Collection

Art Nouveau was a French term given to a movement that dominated European decorative arts in the years c. 1890-1910.  Partly in reaction to the rise of machine-made objects, this elegant style embraced natural, curvilinear lines in subject matter and form as it overtook architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewelry, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils, and lighting, as well as the fine arts.  MOAS has many fine examples of Art Nouveau in graphic art, sculpture, glass, porcelain, and brass and these will be showcased in an exhibition outside the Bouchelle Gallery for International Decorative Arts.

Florida Postcards and Brochures: Sunshine State Tourism in the Early to Mide-20th Century

Florida history is often told through the stories of mighty men finding land they believed was unclaimed but another history of the state can be told through the postcards and attraction brochures of the first half of the 20th century. Not only can the history be told, it can be recreated by today’s tourists and Florida residents alike by visiting the original attractions of the early 20th century that continue to be operated to this day.
