Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and HistoryMiami Museum are partnering on a special project to record and preserve our community's memories of favorite arts and culture moments in the 305, in connection with PAMM's latest exhibition Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Surrounded Islands, Biscayne Bay, Greater Miami, Florida, 1980–83 | A Documentary Exhibition.
This exhibition commemorates the 35th anniversary of Surrounded Islands—an anniversary that also coincides with the founding of PAMM's predecessor institution, Center for Fine Arts. The history of Surrounded Islands is inseparable from PAMM's origin story, and the exhibition reinforces the idea that the museum's evolution is inextricable from the development of Miami as both a city and an artistic hub.
The collaboration invites members of the community to share their favorite Miami arts and culture memories at a series of upcoming events. HistoryMiami Museum will be on-site during the events with its Miami Stories recording booth, operated by an interviewer asking a series of questions to capture personal stories of life in the Magic City.
Hop in the recording booth and share your story. The recordings will become a permanent part of HistoryMiami Museum's ongoing program, Miami Stories. As part of Miami Stories, recordings will be archived at the museum, and may be published in the Miami Herald or broadcast on the radio through WLRN.
