On February 10, 2018, in honor of Black History Month, guests joined us for art-making inspired by artist, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Using scratch paper, participants were able to carve their own layered portrait by combining memory and color. Winds of Heritage Dance Company also stopped by and and presented “Colors”, choreographed by Eulyce Eason, co-artistic director for WOH. The day also saw another installment of “Miami Stories,” a partnership between PAMM, HistoryMiami and WLRN.
The Art + Soul Fifth Anniversary Celebration of the PAMM Fund for African American Art was a great success. PAMM raised more than $250,000 for the Fund—with the proceeds being matched, dollar for dollar, by Knight Foundation—and it was all possible because of supporters like YOU. The Fund supports PAMM’s long-standing commitment to exhibiting and collecting work by African American artists, celebrating their critical contributions to contemporary culture, and reflecting the diversity of the local community and range of cultures that make up Miami.

On January 18, 2018, guests came out to PAMM in celebration of the third, and final, chapter of On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection. Visitors explored the exhibition and joined in on art-making on the terrace, while members in the lounge enjoyed drinks courtesy of Absolut Elyx and Kim Crawford. Inside the auditorium, guests enjoyed an art talk by exhibition artists Carlos Garaicoa and Glexis Novoa, who discussed their work and its relation to the chapter’s theme of Domestic Anxieties. The evening culminated with a live performance by Cortadito, a traditional Cuban Son group that focuses on music of early Cuban origins, with salsa dancing underneath the stars.
