Members are at the heart of Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). In today’s member profile, we’re featuring Mark McIntosh who has called Miami home since 1992. Mark has been a member since 2018.
What drew you to PAMM?
I was excited and proud when Miami got its own brand new art museum. I travel the world to enjoy art and could not miss the opportunity to be a part of it. My support increased as I saw how the museum put a lot of energy and resources into highlighting a variety of artistic viewpoints. Specifically, newer exhibitions such as Nari Ward and Ebony G. Patterson, were key to deepening my interest.
What do you do?
I am an investor, supporter of the arts, and board member of several organizations including the Richard Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship.
Why do you feel art is important, especially in Miami?
So many people in Miami are not exposed to art. From the enjoyment of it, to the support of artists, to art as investment. A museum like PAMM allows people to enjoy art as if they were regular visitors to galleries. Galleries are not always accessible. A well-curated and well-rotated museum collection is the best solution.
What do you envision for PAMM in the future?
PAMM will continue to expose people to art who otherwise would not have had such high-quality interactions. The community of art appreciators will grow in Miami and consistently push Miami further ahead of most of its U.S. counterparts in leading art conversations.
What is a phrase or mantra that you live by?
Be nice, always.
