CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

25 Sq. inches The Faces of the Permanent Collection
October 1, 2014 - January 4, 2015

As one of the most scrutinized and depicted subjects, the human face is perhaps the most important theme in the history of art. The
face has perpetually captivated and inspired artists and artisans. From ancient Egypt to the Renaissance, from photography to Pop
Art, man's fascination with the face is eternal. Drawn from the permanent collection of the Frost Art Museum. Curated by Klaudio
Rodríguez. For more info click here

 

A Wolfsonian Teaching Exhibition:
Koizumi Kishio—Remembering Tokyo

October 1, 2014-January 11, 2015

The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 was the worst natural disaster ever to strike Japan. Using art as a social record, the woodblock
print artist Koizumi Kishio (1893-1945) produced this famous art series between 1928 and 1940. These works are fond memories of
the old imperial capital, as well as his accounts of the resurrection of Tokyo. Curated by Professor Lidu Yi.

 

Papua New Guinea: Gogodala Art and Identity, Transition and Revival
A Frost Art Museum Community Gallery Exhibition

October 1, 2014-October 26, 2014

In 2013, Professor Tudor Parfitt, Director of FIU Global Jewish Communities Program, and the world's leading authority on the Lost Tribes of Israel, led an expedition to Papua New Guinea, accompanied by 4 FIU students, to try to unravel the mystery of the Gogodala people's identity. This exhibition, a representative presentation of recent Gogodala carvings and other martials, brings this research to life. Curated by Professor Annette B. Fromm, in collaboration with Tudor Parfitt.

Deep Blue by Javier Velasco
February 27, 2013 – Remainder of 2014

Spanish multi-media artist has been commissioned to do a site-specific work in the atrium of the Frost Art Museum. He used fused glass to create beautiful works that are allegories to the ephemeral, and speak to the fragility of nature and the environmental concerns of today.

 

 

OTHER THINGS TO SEE

The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery
The Kenan-Flagler Family Discovery Gallery allows visitors to experience interactive activities designed to educate and entertain. This state-of-the-art Discovery Gallery consists of 13 stations including the computer-based display, Picture Yourself, where a camera takes an image of a person’s face and reproduces it on a touch screen. Participants can then trace the contours of the face with their fingers and print the finished product. The Kenan-Flagler Discovery Gallery is possible due to the support of the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust was established in 1965 from the estate of William Rand Kenan, Jr., who was born in Wilmington in 1872 and graduated from UNC in 1894. Kenan was a scientist, chemical and mechanical engineer, business executive, dairy farmer and philanthropist.
