Fort Lauderdale’s FEC Passenger Station Exhibit
Date:
April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013
Location:
Fort Lauderdale Historical Society
Address:
United States
Description:
This new exhibition allows guests to take a quick look at Florida East Coast passenger service in Fort Lauderdale and investigates the importance of the passenger station to the growth of the town. For most of its inhabited history, the New River has been difficult to access. Tropical foliage and the Everglades made traveling south over land slow and tedious. When the first Florida East Coast train arrived at the north bank of the New River in 1896, Fort Lauderdale finally had a reliable, efficient connection to the rest of the country. For nearly 50 years, Fort Lauderdale’s FEC Passenger Station – once situated directly across from the New River Inn – welcomed tens of thousands of people to Fort Lauderdale.

Warhol and Cars: American Icons
Date:
November 10, 2012 to February 10, 2013
Address:
United States
Description:
This is the first exhibition to examine Andy Warhol’s enduring fascination with automobiles as products of American consumer society. Featuring more than forty drawings, paintings, prints, photographs and related archival material spanning the years 1946 to 1986, the exhibition traces the development of Warhol’s work with cars throughout his career. Warhol’s images, which have become icons of American contemporary art, include an array of familiar products, like Coca-Cola and Campbell’s Soup cans. Automobiles were another, though lesser-known focus of his artistic interests. Organized by New Jersey’s Montclair Art Museum and drawn extensively from the collections of the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the exhibition is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue that is available at our own Books & Books in the Museum lobby.

By the time early settler Hugh Taylor Birch purchased the Bonnet House site in 1895, the grounds had already witnessed 4,000 years of Florida history.  A shell midden left by the Tequesta people indicates that human activity on the site dates back to 2,000 B.C. while further archeological evidence suggests that the grounds was one of the first sites of Spanish contact with the new world.  This eclectic house with its unique art-inspired rooms and magnificent gardens is a must-see for anyone visiting the area. Tours are available Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday 11 am to 4 pm.  Bonnet House is closed on Mondays.
