About Miami Art Museum

2010 Ball Chairs
Diane and Robert Moss

MAM is dedicated to engaging a broad public with art from the twentieth century through the present. MAM’s collection, which Art in America magazine called “the quintessential Miami collection” in 1999, looks at international art from the perspective of the Americas and reflects the cosmopolitan makeup of Miami, forging connections among diverse groups and ideas.

Like its collection, MAM’s ambitious exhibition program, comprising both original presentations and traveling exhibitions from other museums, reflects the Museum’s broad vision. Exhibitions have ranged from major solo presentations of work by such artists as Ana Mendieta and Vik Muniz, to group shows such as Miami in Transition, a presentation of responses by Miami-based artists to urban development in the city. The Museum’s education program, with offerings for teachers and students from kindergarten through twelfth grade, is the largest art-museum education program in Miami-Dade County.

Miami Art Museum receives both private and public funding. More than 50 percent of its annual support comes from corporations, individuals, foundations and MAM members. MAM is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts; with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Mayor and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners.

Miami Art Museum is located at 101 West Flagler Street, Miami, and is open Tuesday through Sunday. General admission is $5, $2.50 for seniors, free for MAM members and students. For more information, visit www.miamiartmuseum.org.
