Visitors of all ages are invited to Pérez Art Museum Miami to kick off the museum’s free, monthly program featuring a day of art-making, family-friendly gallery tours, performances and more!
This month, celebrate Miami’s new cultural port, by building personalized model boats inspired by PAMM’s bay-front location and artist Hew Locke’s installation of suspended sea vessels, which hang from the ceiling at the museum’s entrance. Get pumped up with “First Beat,” a special drum performance taking place throughout the museum. Each hour, on the hour, 12 female drummers (from Miami and New York City) will fill PAMM with beats that were intended to be performed exclusively by men, but were re-written to be performed by everyone! Visitors will be invited to create their own percussion instruments and join in the fun! The commissioned performance is composed by Mindy Abovitz, founder and publisher of Tom Tom Magazine, the only publication dedicated to female drummers.
