The Frost Art Museum to Unveil Knight Foundation Virtual Gallery
MIAMI, FL.- The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University (FIU) will unveil the Knight Foundation Virtual Gallery during its popular program Target Wednesday After Hours.

"Through the grant from The Knight Foundation, museum visitors will be able to experience the objects in our collection and the virtual gallery will serve as an entertaining and educational tool," said Carol Damian, director and chief curator.

The Virtual Gallery enables visitors to tour the gallery, focus on individual objects and access additional information and links. The multimedia authoring software will provide such experiences as self-curating gallery spaces using The Frost Art Museum's Permanent Collection. This project will allow the implementation of creative technical solutions to the exhibition's complexity and enhance the viewing and educational experience of visitors of all ages and art backgrounds.

The Virtual Gallery Project will engage the South Florida Community with two interactive virtual gallery kiosks with touch screens located in the Permanent Collection galleries. It will present timelines, maps, and enhanced text labels based on a multi-media system using the most recent technological innovations. The program will create the opportunity for educational projects and other virtual experiences for students, visitors, curators and museum studies.

The Permanent Collection offers a rich variety of artworks from all over the world that range from contemporary installations to the ritual artifacts of Pre-Columbian cultures, wood carvings from African tribal peoples and the delicate visages of Asian deities. Among its thousands of objects, the attention to the human figure emerges as a particularly significant aspect of all artistic endeavors throughout time.
