Virtual Exhibition Opening from 10 am to 5 pm
From the Debra and Dennis Scholl Collection. Organized by the Nevada Museum of Art.
‘The Inside World: Contemporary Aboriginal Australian Memorial Poles’ features 112 memorial poles by 55 artists arranged geographically from west to east, truly a testament to the diversity of the artistic practices of Australia’s tropical north- Arnhem Land. Arnhem Land is a place of incredible beauty and life, it is home to more than 10,000 Indigenous Australians from over 20 distinct language groups.
Curated by Amy Galpin, Chief Curator.
Organized in 5 sections, the show examines how art objects, created across cultures and during different time periods, relate to one another and to a myriad of publics.
The Wolfsonian, The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, and The Jewish Museum of Florida are currently formulating our reopening strategies in close consultation with University leadership. FIU has already announced several campus-wide directives that will inform this timeline, including remote work through at least July 6.
Though we don’t have specific target dates in mind at this point, we know there will be a phased approach so that we reopen to staff and the public in the safest possible manner.
The museum resides in a beautiful 46,000 square foot building designed by Yann Weymouth and situated in the Florida International University Campus, in the heart of FIU’s Avenue of the Arts.
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum’s mission is to provide transformative experiences through art; collect, exhibit, and interpret art across cultures; and advance FIU’s stature as a top tier research university.
One of the largest academic art museums in South Florida, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum provides the community with free access to world-class art that spans cultures and time periods. The museum started as a small space in FIU’s Primera Casa building in 1978. As the collection and programming grew, the university recognized the need for a dedicated museum space. The museum now resides in a beautiful 46,000 square foot building designed by Yann Weymouth and situated in the heart of FIU’s Avenue of the Arts. The museum opened its doors in 2008.
