Dr. Jordana Pomeroy, director of the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, announces definite plans to open a café at the museum.

While sharing some student membership privileges, Dr. Pomeroy also announced the café opening mid-fall at the Frost Art Museum,

“You get all the benefits and there’s a whole list of it. You get to come to members-only openings and [it] makes you eligible for all kinds of things. Soon, actually, discounts. We’re going to have a café here, and you’ll have a discount in the café. Which I think that will probably be the biggest benefits for our students.” said Pomeroy.

Anticipated to be complete by September, this café can offer even more if you’re a member of the museum. The membership includes free unlimited admission, discounts on ticketed programs, exhibit previews and much more.

Pomeroy wants to rally more support for the arts but specifically with students because, “It is really important that we grow our membership. Your dollars make a huge impact on this museum.” said Pomeroy. She also shared that she would like to see more students get involved with the Frost Museum.

“We’re happy and would love to have our students join.” said Pomeroy after the exhibit opening of  Resonance/Dissonance.

Marcus Horton, third year biological science and chemistry major at FIU,said that he is “excited to have a new place to study and enjoy the beautiful art. With Frost [museum] having a café, it would be hard not to spend more time there.”

“With all the new developments and exciting exhibits coming up this year, we really encourage everybody to join.” said Pomeroy
