Coming soon to Miami neighborhoods: museum-quality pieces of art — or at least their reproductions.
As part of a program called Inside|Out, the Pérez Art Museum Miami will place 30 reproductions of works from its collection in three different neighborhoods. Events and activities will be planned around the art.
The program started five years ago at the Detroit Institute of Arts and is expanding this summer to include the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Akron Art Museum.
A $2 million grant over three years from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is funding the expansion to those cities and Miami, and more communities will be added in 2016 and 2017.
“Miami is a place where people live outside, so it only makes sense for the Pérez Art Museum Miami to bring Inside|Out to the residents of Miami-Dade County,” said Leann Standish, PAMM’s interim director, in a statement. “Inside|Out supports the museum’s mission to make art a part of our community’s everyday lives and beyond the museum’s walls.”
