FIU’s Wolfsonian Free on Friday Nights

It’s no secret that Friday nights in Miami can weigh heavily on the wallet. For those seeking an artsy solution, FIU’s Wolfsonian museum on the beach is the perfect place to be.

While FIU students can always get in free of charge, every Friday until August 14th, the Wolfsonian will open its doors to the public from 6pm to 9pm, making it the perfect opportunity to bring a friend or family member.

Guests can enjoy a free, 45 minute guided tour through the museum’s galleries where a diverse mix of exhibitions grace the walls.

For those interested in Miami’s rich history, the Boom, Bust, Boom exhibition showcases the birth of downtown Miami’s art-deco architecture scene from 1920-1930. At Ease is a similar exhibit that shifts its lens from downtown Miami to Miami Beach during World War Two, when many of the island’s iconic buildings were converted into army barracks.

Mixing it up, Pose and Propaganda is a showcase of political posters from the contemporary Middle East. The exhibit is full of striking art collected by Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent Dexter Filkins, providing a stark contrast to the vibrant neon of a typical Friday on South Beach.

Make sure to take advantage of all the Wolfsonian has to offer, as many of these galleries will be changing out over the summer in preparation for fall.

The Wolfsonian is located at 1001 Washington Avenue   Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, go to their website at
