Beyond The Rails: Notes on Trains, Travel and Society will open at MDC Museum of Art + Design with a free reception. The exhibition explores the railroad industry through an array of objects, including advertising ephemera, historical artifacts, photographs and art works, that will engage viewers with a visual experience and provoke a better understanding of the powerful role that rail travel played in society and industry in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Beyond The Rails represents the final production of a year-long Museum Studies course at the Wolfsonian FIU/Downtown. The exhibition is curated by Miami Dade College and New World School of the Arts students. On view through April 28.
