Univision Communications has donated 57 artworks by 40 artists from the U.S. and Latin America to the Patricia & Phillip Frost Museum FIU.
The donation includes paintings, serigraphs and mixed media works by Humberto Calzada, Wifredo Lam, Coqui Calderon, Antonia Guzman and Rafael Soriano, among others.
The works will be showcased during an exhibition, “Reflections of the Americas: New Acquisitions from the Collection of Univision,” that will run Sept. 23-Jan.3 at the museum, located on the Florida International Campus at 10975 SW 17th St. in Miami.
“The Frost Art Museum FIU is honored to have been chosen by Univision for this donation of Latin American art,” said Dr. Jordana Pomeroy, the museum’s director, in a statement. “This collection from Univision aligns naturally with our mission to inspire and propel Miami’s evolution as a cultural destination.”
The donated works had been housed and exhibited throughout the hallways of Univision Television Network’s broadcast facility in Doral.
“This wide-ranging collection ... has served as a constant inspiration and reflection of the rich tapestry of cultures and traditions that make up this country’s diverse Hispanic community,” said Jessica Rodriguez, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Univision Communications. “So it is especially appropriate that ... Univision donates this collection of 57 celebrated works to another great hometown institution, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU, so that they may inspire others for years to come.”
