We have some exciting news to share. We did it!
Thanks to all of our wonderful supporters who donated to the PAMM Fund for African American Art, we raised more than $200,000 during our match campaign. Those dollars were matched by Knight Foundation, for double the funds and double the impact.
The money we’ve raised together will help shape PAMM’s collection of contemporary art by African American artists and support the fund’s inclusive nature. Thanks to you, we will be able to acquire world-class works by African American artists for generations to come.
We could not have surpassed the match without the help of our community. From a dollar to six-figure gifts, every gift is going to make a difference in continuing to ensure that our collection is reflective of our diverse community.
Through the completion of this match, the fund will be endowed in perpetuity, offering the opportunity to create a collection of the highest artistic standard that reflects PAMM’s community.
Again, thank YOU! Franklin Sirmans Director

Opening mid-September 2017
On August 12, 2017 guests came out for a day of fun at PAMM Free Second Saturdays: Lively Line.
Guests celebrated the day of free admission with art-making on the terrace, lunch at Verde, and tours of new exhibitions inside the galleries. This month, the art-making was inspired by the precision and line work found in PAMM’s Toba Khedoori exhibition, as participants used a variety of unique materials to create their very own large scale still life.
Toba Khedoori is the first major museum presentation of Khedoori’s new paintings and her first survey in fifteen years. The show honors the artist’s commitment to the silent, slow and exacting process of working by hand.
PAMM needs your vote! PAMM is currently involved in the exciting process of launching Augmented Reality at the museum. SXSW EDU 2018 has given PAMM a chance to host a panel, to be called "Museum-as-a-Platform for Artists & Educators," but only if we get enough votes to be considered.
About the panel: In 2017, augmented reality (AR) leaped into the mainstream lens through Pokemon Go, Snapchat, and Instagram filters. What happens when a museums gives creative license and charges the artists and educators, themselves, to experiment, interpret and challenge what it means to use AR? Explore the relationship between artist, institution/educators, and technologist as well as museums’ growing role as a platform for artists and creative digital experiences.
It was a full house for Pérez Art Museum Miami on August 3, 2017, as the museum celebrated the August edition of its Free Community night with a performance from the Nu Deco Ensemble.
