Free Family Day at Frost Art Museum on Saturday

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum invites you to a special Family Day on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021.

From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., participate in hands-on activities designed to engage you and the kids with the museum’s collections and exhibitions. This month’s theme is Hispanic Heritage.

Admission is always free to this museum, which is situated in the Modesto A. Maidique campus of Florida International University, at 10975 SW 17th St. Hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays.

During Family Day, the museum is featuring “alebrijes,” which are colorful sculptures of mythical creatures that were originally created by Mexican artist Pedro Linares in the 1930s. At the Frost, artist Pepe Mar will work with you to create your own alebrije. 

“Hispanic Heritage Month is an annual celebration of the history and culture of the U.S. Latinx and Hispanic communities, commemorating these communities’ contributions to American society at large,” according to the website.
