About Pérez Art Museum Miami
Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), formerly Miami Art Museum, opens to the public in December 2013 in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. Pérez Art Museum Miami is focused on collecting and exhibiting modern and contemporary art that represents Miami’s cultural diversity, while providing progressive educational and community programming. Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Museum’s new, cutting-edge facility will provide room to showcase growing collections, expanded exhibition space to bring more world-class exhibitions to Miami-Dade County and an educational complex. Pérez Art Museum Miami was originally founded as Center for Fine Arts, and was strictly an exhibiting organization with no collection of its own. In 1996, as part of an institution-wide reorganization, the museum was renamed Miami Art Museum and dedicated itself to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries with a special emphasis on art of the Americas. In January 2011 work began on a cutting-edge building with generous spaces to showcase its art holdings and attract more top caliber exhibitions. Pérez Art Museum Miami will be located at 1103 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33132, in between the Arsht Center and the American Airlines Arena.
