WHAT: Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is set to host the last edition for 2018 of its monthly mainstay “Third Thursday: Poplife Social” event series on Thursday, December 20. The event will feature a can’t-miss musical performance on the iconic museum terrace by Latin Grammy®-nominated producer and DJ, Mr. Pauer, who will spin his unique Miami sound, “Electrópico”, a fusion of electronica and music born between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn, including Salsa, Zouk, Reggae, Cumbia, Dancehall, Merengue, and Kuduro.

As an institution that has served as a catalyst for arts in the Magic City for over three decades, PAMM is now entering its 35th year and has an energetic and diverse slate of programming planned for 2019. Next year, PAMM’s “Third Thursday” celebration will be held seasonally versus on a monthly basis.

In this last edition of the 2018 program, guests will get to sip on tasty cocktails from the museum’s waterfront bar, dine at Verde or join in on exhibition inspired art creations. Inside the museum, they will see PAMM’s newest exhibitions including Pedro Neves Marques: A Mordida and José Carlos Martinat: American Echo Chamber, among others.

During the event, guests will also be offered a first-hand look at PAMM’s recently unveiled PAMM Portal experience, which invites museum guests to physically step into a colorful, oversized structure located just outside the museum entrance.

Inspired by PAMM’s 35th anniversary logo design and created by Atmospheric Architect Stefan Von Fouts, the beautifully artistic acrylic plexiglass structure, which is perfectly positioned to overlook Miami’s Biscayne Bay, is made with dichroic film and changes colors when viewed from different angles and makes for an unforgettable photo opp.

This initiative aims to commemorate the institution’s milestone and get museum visitors to reflect and honor PAMM’s contributions to the Magic City’s past, present and future art scene.
