Taking The New Frost Through Its First Year And Beyond Damian Envisions Exhibits As Diverse As This Community
Written by Miami Today on February 18, 2010
A little more than a year after its opening, Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum’s Director Carol Damian says there’s lots to be proud of but lots to do.
Ms. Damian, who served as chair of Florida International University’s Art and Art History Department and as curator of the museum’s permanent collection before taking over the top spot, said the first year has taught her what she can use the museum’s nine galleries for, and also what the 46,000-square-foot building needs.
Among the needs she sees are endowments supporting educational and curatorial initiatives and more staff.
As the years move on, Ms. Damian said one of her best resources is the university and the fact that she has students to educate and colleagues that can bring her up to speed on nearly any topic.
