The Artifacts of Pre-Columbian America provide us with a glimpse into the mysterious death-cult rituals that guide a person into the afterlife. This exhibition explores the idea of metamorphosis or transformation from the earthly to the spiritual through a cast of unique and often strange characters and objects from the Toro Family Collection of Pre-Columbian Colombia. Organized by FIU students in Art History, Museum Studies and the MFA in Curatorial Practice, the exhibition has taken a unique approach. Through new technologies, the works have been replicated and recast into creative objects that tell the story for modern eyes.
When: November 30, 2016 – December 16, 2016 Curated by: MFA Students Opening: Friday, December 9th 7pm
Alex Trimino graduated with her MFA in visual arts from FIU in 2012, she works in textile and electronics activate space with totems of fluorescent light, color and crochet.

This exhibition is perfect for the Washington Gallery because of its public arts component; it allows the pedestrians on the street to interact with the artwork without entering the gallery.
