The Frost Art Museum is fortunate to be a part of FIU, one of the largest research universities in the country. We provide our students, faculty and staff with access to art from around the world and develop programming to engage our community.

Faculty Resources

The museum welcomes faculty to bring their classes to the museum to provide a visual component to their courses. In addition to our exhibitions, our collection of over 6,000 works is available as a resource. Faculty should contact Maryanna Ramirez, maramire@fiu.edu, to discuss viewing the collection.

Student Resources

We provide our students with a critical component to their academic learning. Through our exhibitions, collections, and programming we create multiple entry points for our students to engage with art.

In addition to our diverse exhibition schedule, we hold annual exhibitions for students to complement courses, highlight university programs, and feature our amazing students.

First Year Exhibition

In 2016, the museum launched an initiative with the Common Reading Program to attract new students to the museum. All incoming students entering FIU read the same book and discuss it in their First Year Experience course. The museum developed an exhibition to complement the book with visual literacy, and introduce students to the museum. In its first year, the museum provided 24 tours and welcomed 2,465 first year students to the museum.

MLK Exhibition

For several years, the museum has developed an exhibition in the winter to coincide with the university’s MLK Commemorative Celebration. In 2016, the museum defined the scope and goal of the exhibition, and established it formally as an exhibition series. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Exhibition series addresses issues of race, diversity, social justice, civil rights and humanity to serve as a catalyst for dialogue and enrich our community with new perspectives.

Student-created Exhibitions

The museum works with faculty and students to produce exhibitions that are curated by students or include works by students. Annually, we hold the Master of Art Education exhibition, Master of Fine Arts exhibition, Master of Fine Arts Curatorial Practice, and Aesthetics and Values Honors College exhibition.
