This Wednesday October 13, The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University (FIU) will be holding its opening reception for four fall exhibitions. The event will continue the Museum’s popular “Target Wednesday After Hours” series held monthly throughout the university’s academic year.

The Museum is featuring four new exhibits this fall: “Embracing Modernity: Venezuelan Geometric Abstraction”; “Florida Artist Series: Selections from Anomie 1492-2006” by Arnold Mesches; Xavier Cortada's “Sequentia”, and “La Habana Moderna” in the Wolfsonian Teaching Gallery at The Frost.

Carol Damian, Director and Chief Curator of The Frost, said the exhibits represent the very mission of FIU and its new Worlds Ahead theme.

“We are international and part of the new world. The exhibits represent Europe, America, Latin America and the Caribbean art histories and span 500 years of artistic production,” said Damian.  

The Frost has partnered with Target to hold the monthly receptions, which complement the Museum's exhibitions. Visitors have the chance to meet and socialize with artists and patrons, learn about the Museum, and experience different forms of art, music, film, dance, and other performances. 

“Target Wednesday After Hours” are free and open to the public and take place from 6 – 9 pm one Wednesday each month. For more information on events at The Frost, visit
