Biographical / Historical:
The Frances Wolfson Art Gallery was established in 1976 on the Mitchell Wolfson New World Center Campus of the Miami-Dade Community College. It focused on the art of the local Latino community in addition to serving the needs of the College's arts and humanities students. Exhibitions and lectures reflected four major areas of emphasis: the Latino community, the Black community, the relationship of art, architecture and culture to the quality of contemporary urban civilization, and the best of new artists presented in solo or cohesive group exhibitions.

Director from 1978 to 1981, Roberta Griffin was followed in that position by Sheldon Lurie in September 1981 until his death in October 1990.

In the spring of 1987, the Frances Wolfson Art Gallery implemented an active exhibition program at the InterAmerican Center in the form of the InterAmerican Art Gallery. Located in the Little Havana section of Miami, the major thrust of this gallery is Hispanic art, reflecting the interests and needs of the surrounding community.
