The Lod Mosaic Opening Reception

Miamians have a chance to meet a true “Roman Rock Star” up close in the magnificent Lod Mosaic, a 3rd-century CE Roman Mosaic from the Eastern Roman Empire in modern-day Israel. 

The mosaic continues its transcontinental tour at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU, the Smithsonian affiliate in Miami. Presented in association with the Israel Antiquities Authority, the mosaic has attracted crowds at the Louvre in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Hermitage Museum in Russia.

The exhibition in Miami (opens February 10, closes May 15, admission is free) has been generously underwritten by the museum’s patrons Patricia and Phillip Frost and provides a rare opportunity to to see one of the world’s finest, largest and most well-preserved ancient mosaics up close.

Wednesday, Feb. 10  (5:00-8:00 p.m.)
Dignitaries from Israel and Washington will attend, as will local leaders. A limited number of interviews available, based on advance request. Media RSVP by Feb. 8 for the opening reception.
