The Jorge M. Pérez Art Museum of Miami-Dade County (PAMM) has been the flagship museum for Miami-Dade for almost 35 years. At its founding in 1984, the Museum was dedicated to international art of the 20th and 21st centuries, aiming to fill a void in a young city where no contemporary art museum existed. In 1994, we became a collecting institution, and recognizing the massive demographic change that took place in Miami in the previous decade, we refocused our mission to ensure the Museum reflected the city’s plurality of communities. In 2013, we continued to grow with our city, expanding into a 200,000-square foot campus prominently located on Biscayne Bay, between the American Airlines Arena to the south and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts to the north. Today we launch forward from this past. In line with the 400-year history of art collecting museums, we believe art and ideas have the power to enrich the lives of all people – they are an integral part of creating a more humane and just world. As a 21st-century institution, we believe that museums, alongside places of worship, libraries, schools, concert halls, and stadiums, are town halls for the people. These are places that offer opportunities for the healthy exchange of ideas paramount to citizens, promoting inclusivity across our communities, backgrounds, and experiences. We recognize that our city contains a diversity, and we seek to reflect that diversity in everything we do while embracing the power of art and creativity. PAMM aspires to fulfill these beliefs for the Miami of today and tomorrow. We are committed to international modern and contemporary art, and our home at the crossroads of the Americas also uniquely positions us to be the best at presenting art from the U.S. Latino experience, the African diaspora, Latin America, and the Caribbean. We showcase the diversity of 20th- and 21st-century artists, and our programs seek to educate and ensure that all people can participate in a conversation that shares art at its center.
