at A Celebration of Science Grand Opening Event

The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and its Board of Trustees celebrated its grand opening event and fundraiser, A Celebration of Science, on Saturday, May 6, 2017, raising over $1.2 million in support of the museum’s exhibitions and programs.

The sold-out fundraiser brought together over 750 notable guests commemorating the opening of the new, state-of-the-art campus in Downtown Miami’s Museum Park and honored South Florida’s only planetarium, aquarium and science museum.

The celebration kicked off in the museum’s Aquarium with live music by the Frost School of Music, curated by Shelton Glen “Shelly” Berg, Dean of the Frost School of Music, and creative libations provided by Castle Brands. After exploring the three-level Aquarium, guests made their way to the Baptist Health South Florida Gallery for welcome remarks by Frost Science President, Frank Steslow; Dr. Phillip and Patricia Frost; Frost Science Board Chairman, Cesar L. Alvarez; and Smithsonian Institution Acting Provost & Under Secretary for Museums and Research, Dr. Richard Kurin. The evening continued with an elegant dinner reception, held in the Hsiao Family Special Exhibition Gallery and the Frost Planetarium.
