The Pérez Art Museum Miami has been known under its current name shortly; however, its history extends much further than that. It has brought to Miami culture, art and education for over two decades in a variety of ways. PAMM’s collection begins as far back as 1996, when it began to focus on art from the Atlantic Rim (the Americas, Western Europe and Africa) from the 20th and 21st centuries. Today, the collection holds more than 1,800 pieces.
The 200,000 square-foot location was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and opened in 2013, after receiving millions of dollars in funding from foundations and private donors who wanted to help further the institution’s goals. The building’s open spaces were created in such a way as to merge the community, nature, architecture and art into one. To learn more about the building’s design, click here.
Besides offering our community an amazing space to relax and enjoy art, PAMM has also opened up a number of programs to enhance the visitor’s learning experience. Among them, talks and lectures as well as guided tours and afterschool programs for students and even provides Free Second Saturdays to visit the museum for free (learn more about the programs.)
The particular exhibition shown in the video pertains to Julio Le Parc, which will be on view until March 19. It’s an amazing exhibition. If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend you visit this one!
The museum is open Monday, Tuesday, and Friday thru Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., is closed on Wednesdays, and open on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Prices vary between $12 to $16, but if you visit on Second Saturdays or First Thursdays, entry is free.
