Contacts & Details
Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) was originally founded as the 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. Since then, the collection has grown steadily and now comprises more than 1,300 works across a range of media.
The new Pérez Art Museum Miami in downtown Miami’s Museum Park strengthens the Museum’s role as a vital cultural and educational center and provide generous spaces to showcase the Museum’s art holdings and attract more top caliber exhibitions. Opening as Pérez Art Museum Miami in recognition of a landmark leadership gift of cash and art from Jorge M. Pérez –now valued at $40 million – the Museum serves as a resource commensurate with Miami’s thriving community of artists, designers, collectors and arts-engaged public.
OPENING: mon, tue, fri, sat, sun 10:00 am - 6:00 pm; thu 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
