Miami Knights Arts Challenge announced its 2013 winners, PAMM being amongst the group.
Tonight, on the New World Center stage, the Knight Foundation celebrated 49 local artists, and the impact they are having on our cultural community and our city, and their big ideas for the South Florida arts. Each is a winner of the Miami Knight Arts Challenge, receiving combined $2.72 million. Pérez Art Museum Miami is amongst the winners, recieving support for free public programming on the first Thursday night of each month, which includes films and videos, talks and art events, such as commissioned site-specific contemporary performances and participatory events. The programming series, which will feature partnerships with local groups and themes related to ongoing exhibitions, will include work by international and regional artists for presentation in PAMM’s theater space, Knight Plaza and Museum Park. The museum hopes that this programming will engage audiences and activate Miami’s Museum Park at night, creating a space for new ideas and experiences.
