Pérez Art Museum Miami Joins WPLG-TV eARTh Day Art Contest

The renowned and prestigious Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is partnering with WPLG-TV Local 10 for its first eARTh Day Art Contest.  The museum, located at 1103 Biscayne Boulevard, will display the original works of art of the ten contest finalists.  South Florida art teachers and students, from grades K-12, are invited to create an original painting or sculpture that incorporates themes and elements inspired by nature.

“PAMM has been the site for several conversations related to the intersection of art and the environment,” said Director Franklin Sirmans. “Our own building has been internationally recognized as an example of leadership in sustainable energy and environmental design.  We are excited to work with Local10 and the many talented art students in this community on this outreach initiative with art as a catalyst for important conversations.”  

To enter, art teachers, representing their students and schools, must complete an entry form and submit a photo of the original artwork online at local10.com.  Only one entry permitted per school.  Entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 11, 2018.

Local 10 will choose ten finalists and their work will be displayed at PAMM from April 16-22. Viewer votes will select the winning entry from among the finalists.  The winning school will be announced on Earth Day, Sunday April 22, on Local 10 News and will receive $4,500 in art supplies for their school’s art department.
