The City of Pembroke Pines has made the decision to temporarily discontinue public visits to The Frank C. Ortis Art Gallery as well as suspend all public programming, school field trips, meetings, classes and events until further notice.
Our current exhibition, The Academy, will be viewable via a virtual tour soon.
The City of Pembroke Pines and the Frank Art Gallery are pleased to present The Academy, which runs from February 13th, 2020 - August 8th, 2020.
For the first time ever, Florida International University's Department of Art +Art History will exhibit the work of their Academy of Portrait & Figurative Art. This classical atelier with courses in drawing and painting is led by its founder, David Chang, a classically-trained artist, professor and chair of the department. At The Academy, pupils learn one-on-one with a master to perfect their drawing and painting. Since its inception, many of FIU’s most talented students and alumni have become a part of this unique and competitive experience at the university, establishing it as a leader of visual art in higher education. It remains the first of its kind at a public university in the nation.
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 13th, 2020, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
