Central to its mission, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) encourages everyone to see art as an incentive for genuine human interaction, communication, and exchange. After making the collaborative yet difficult decision to close its doors to support ongoing efforts for the well-being of our city and community during the COVID-19 situation, we look to continue to foster these connections digitally. After all, art is not canceled.
PAMM will stay “open” online. We have recently added a Digital Page to our website, where our visitors can virtually explore our galleries guided by artists, curators and members of our PAMMily from the comfort of their homes. We have also compiled a number of additional resources including information about current and past exhibitions, almost 100 art talks featuring conversations with artists, scholars and collectors, as well as creative arts and crafts the whole family can enjoy. Additionally, PAMM Shop is offering free shipping on all orders through the end of March.
On Thursday, March 26, we hosted our first virtual event, Local Views at PAMM with Cara Despain, on Facebook Live. We look forward to hosting many more virtual events throughout April, so stay tuned!
We would love to hear from you about how you are enjoying PAMM from home! You can also share ways that you #MuseumfromHome with us on social media. Similarly, we would like to ask our members and visitors what you would like to see more of during this period of social distancing.
The safety, health, and comfort of our visitors and staff is our first and top priority. We will continue to keep our PAMMily well-informed and up-to-date via email, our website and through social media (@pamm). Be safe, stay safe – we look forward to welcoming you back to PAMM soon!
