On Thursday, September 18, 2014, visitors celebrated the opening of Beatriz Milhazes: Jardim Botânico at Pérez Art Museum Miami. The opening celebration featured the Miami debut of Brazilian band Alma Tropicalia, sets by DJ Marcello Bentine and Brazilian-inspired cocktails as the sun set over Museum Park.
Curated by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander, this exhibition marks the first major U.S. retrospective of Milhazes’ work, chronicling the past 25 years of her career. The multiday affair also included an exclusive preview for PAMM Museum Circle members as well as a conversation with the artist and chief curator, tours and family-friendly art-making in conjunction with DWNTWN Art Days.
