Join Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) in welcoming the honorable Audrey M. Edmonson, Vice Chairwoman, Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners as the host of November's PAMM Free Second Saturday. Commissioner Edmonson will commence an inspired day of creativity with a ceremonial stroke of a PAMM paint brush at 1pm.
Experience the urban-meets-tropical vibes of Miami-based artist Lynne Golob Gelfman's latest exhibition, Grids. Head down to the bayfront terrace for art-making and explore the light, rhythm, and patterns in Gelfman's textural, layered works. Apply color to textiles in a variety of ways to create your own abstract work of art.
"I am excited to host Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) Second Saturday Family Day. I'm encouraged to know that we have community partners in our County, like PAMM, that open the magical doors of the arts to our residents, many of whom may not otherwise have an opportunity to experience a visit to the museum. I often say the arts are the great equalizer in society. They reach across every age group, every race, color or creed and brings people together in a shared experience. I thank PAMM and all our collaborators which make this day something special for our residents."
