Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM)
A guide to the Pérez Art Museum Miami in downtown Miami
Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a modern and contemporary art museum dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries. It was originally founded as the Center for Fine Arts, which didn’t have a collection of its own. The museum was renamed Miami Art Museum in 1996 during a reorganization that shifted the focus to collecting as well as exhibiting with an emphasis on the Americas. The collection has grown since then and now comprises more than 1,300 works. Located in downtown Miami’s new Museum Park on Biscayne Bay, the museum is now called the Pérez Art Museum Miami in recognition of a landmark leadership gift of cash and art from Jorge M. Pérez— a gift valued at $40 million. The building was designed with Miami's climate and aesthetic in mind by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron. It encompasses three stories with 200,000 square feet of space for the display of art, educational programming, entertainment areas and dining options. Miami’s thriving community of artists, designers, collectors, and art enthusiasts drove the demand for a world-class museum like PAMM. The new PAMM positions Museum Park as a central destination on Miami’s cultural map. It promotes progressive arts education, community cohesiveness and the revitalization of downtown. The acclaimed retrospective by Chinese dissident Ai Weiwei, “According to What,” will be on view until March 16, 2014.
