On Saturday, December 14, hundreds of visitors of all ages were invited to Pérez Art Museum Miami to kick off the museum’s free, monthly program featuring a day of art-making, family-friendly gallery tours, performances and more.
Visitors enjoyed “First Beat,” a special drum performance that took place throughout the museum. Each hour, on the hour, 12 female drummers (from Miami and New York City) filled PAMM with beats that were intended to be performed exclusively by men, but were re-written to be performed by everyone! Families also created their own percussion instruments to join in the fun!
"First Beat" was orchestrated by Mindy Abovitz/Tom Tom Magazine. Commissioned by Perez Art Museum Miami. December 2013.
