PAMM is proud to announce it is the recipient of an award from all three federal arts and culture agencies for its community outreach program, Brick x Brick . 17-year-old Brick x Brick student Balthazar Cordova attended the award ceremony in DC today to accept the award on PAMM’s behalf.

On October 28, 2017, guests came out in their best costumes and joined us for a not-so-spooky day of family activities.

Afterwards, guests roamed the galleries and joined in on the day's "Art Storytime" activity. Little ghouls and goblins enjoyed Halloween-themed art-making activities, including cookie decorating and mask making.

On October 19, 2017, an intimate group of guests enjoyed a starlit, private dinner hosted by designer John Varvatos on Pérez Art Museum Miami’s breath-taking third floor terraces.

The exhibition has been generously underwritten by John Varvatos and his company.
