We interviewed Micky Wolfson amidst his decorative arts collection -- ranging from propaganda to industrial and graphic design in the 1885–1945 period. It is like sitting in history. At every corner there is an artifact that demands your attention.

Micky Wolfson is a collector. He focuses on objects, not their context. He leaves that to the curators and historians who interpret, as he says, "with a point of view."

This is a short bite from his far longer reminiscences. Specifically, he talks about his view of the objects he has collected and their meaning.

If you haven't visited his collection at the Wolfsonian on Miami Beach, you're missing out.

We interviewed Wolfson as part of the Miami Beach Visual Memoirs project, in partnership with the Miami Design Preservation League with funding from the Miami Beach Visitors and Convention Authority.
