Styled for the Road: The Art of Automobile Design, 1908-1948 explores the role of artists in the development of automobiles, roadways, and related advertising materials.

In addition, the hosting museum, The Wolfsonian at Florida International University (1001 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) will offer lectures throughout the year by contemporary automotive designers like BMWs Chris Bangle. The opening reception is planned for Friday, and the exhibit runs through March 14. Admission is $7. Call 305-531-1001, or visit wolfsonian.org.
