In 1996, workmen widening the Jerusalem–Tel Aviv road made a startling discovery: signs of a Roman mosaic pavement were found about three feet below the modern ground surface. A rescue excavation was conducted immediately, revealing a tile floor that measures approximately 50 feet long by 27 feet wide.  The opulent artwork graced the floor in a reception hall of a private home circa 3rd century CE.

Join our private tour of this fantastic artifact on Sunday, May 15 at 1 pm. Our guide will be noted art historian Dr Jordana Pomeroy, the Director of Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, FIU. She will take us on a lively exploration of the exhibit's connections to history, world trade, science and fine art. We will also have the chance to explore the Museum’s famed Sculpture Garden. 

Afterward mix, mingle and enjoy a lavish Roman Banquet including wine. The multi-course feast is a special creation for our event by famed Miami Chef Kazu Abe.
