On January 17th, the Frost Art Museum held a Spring 2017 Public Art Charrette that brought together 38 students and eight faculty members from the College of Communication, Architecture + the Arts to develop new strategies and initiatives to promote public art on campus.
The Public Art Charrette, organized by FIU associate professors David Rifkind and Roberto Rovira, served as a way to promote students thinking outside of their own disciplines and increase student engagement and awareness with the arts.
