On August 17, 2017, your girl’s favorite party, Peachfuzz, took over PAMM for a special edition of PAMM Third Thursdays: Poplife Social. The night’s theme was a “summer block party,” which guests celebrated with tasty bites, summer inspired art-making, and goodies like fans and beach hats. In the member’s lounge, guests were treated to drinks courtesy of Fi’lia and Becks. On the terrace, DJ DZA spun classic hip hop tracks that kept the crowd dancing all night long. Inside, the galleries stayed opened late, as guests took the chance to explore all of PAMM’s new exhibitions.
Today, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) announced that it exceeded its $200,000 fundraising goal to match a challenge grant for the PAMM Fund for African American Art, a fund initiated for the purchase of contemporary art by African American artists for the museum’s permanent collection. Gifts by 160 supporters helped PAMM exceed its goal by more than $7,000. The fund also gained 62 new Ambassador members, who will continue to help shape the institution’s collection of contemporary art by African American artists and support the fund’s inclusive nature.
The latest edition to PAMM's dining program, STARR Catering Group introduces Cucuyo, a fusion of art and culinary expertise. Named after summer childhood memories of catching glowing click beetles in the backyard, the cocoon shaped café was designed by South Florida’s celebrated Berenblum Busch Architects (BBA) and manufactured by Amsterdam-based MX3D, using innovative 3D printing technology.
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.
