Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is dedicated to showcasing excellence in international modern and contemporary art while highlighting our unique perspective at the crossroads of the Americas. We highlight Miami-based artists both in our collection and on a monthly basis by way of Local Views at PAMM. As we continue to function in a digital sphere, PAMM remains dedicated to Miami-based artists and is excited to offer our Local Views at PAMM series weekly. Artists will discuss their artistic practice, their creative process, and how it relates to the museum.
This week will feature PAMM Teaching Artist Asser Saint-Val. Catch this Live Virtual Local Views series on PAMM Facebook Live and YouTube Live.
