What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) serves one of the most diverse populations in one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, where a confluence of Caribbean, North American, and South American cultures adds vibrancy and variety to civic activity. PAMM strives to reflect the diversity of our city’s population in its permanent collections, exhibitions, education offerings and public programs, and recognizes that this diversity is integral to PAMM’s excellence and success. As a 21st-century institution, PAMM believes that museums are ‘town halls’ for the people: places that offer opportunities for the healthy exchange of ideas paramount to citizens, promoting inclusivity across our communities, backgrounds, and experiences.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

PAMM Exhibitions

The focal point of PAMM’s onsite activities is the exhibition schedule. PAMM emphasizes artists and projects that engage with traditions from the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and is particularly attuned to the work of local artists and designers. Every year PAMM presents at least twelve temporary exhibitions in its changing galleries. These exhibitions span a variety of media (painting, sculpture, video, installation, photography), and highlight artists from around the United States, Latin America, and the Pacific Rim, as well as Miami-based artists.

Population(s) Served

PAMM serves nearly 47,000 young people through education and outreach each year. The cornerstone of our education offerings, the PAMM Knight Schools Program, is the largest art education program in Miami-Dade County outside of the public school system and serves approximately 20,000 public school students through a more than thirty-year partnership with the public school district. All education programs are offered free of charge and include school field trips guided by expert Teaching Artists, art programs at community summer camps, arts activities for pre-schoolers, and intensive after-school programs for teens in underserved neighborhoods. PAMM launched the Student Pass program in 2018 providing year-round free admission to all students enrolled in Miami-Dade County public schools. PAMM also provides free admission to local educators (nearly 700 each year), intensive teacher workshops, and a comprehensive range of digital resources to support teachers in the classroom.

Population(s) Served

PAMM’s vision is expressed in its growing collecting program. PAMM began collecting in 1996 with a focus on art from the 20th and 21st centuries and the cultures of the Atlantic Rim (the Americas, Western Europe, and Africa). The collection is attuned to the globalization of the art world and reflects the transmission of ideas across continents, while still concentrating on those issues and themes that are most pertinent to Miami audiences. Together, these collecting goals create a dynamic interplay between local, regional, and global perspectives.

While PAMM’s collection is still young, it now numbers more than 2,600 works, including painting, sculpture, video, photography and installation. Strengths of the collection include artists working in Miami and South Florida; modern and contemporary art of Latin America and the Caribbean; and art by African American and African diaspora artists, thanks to the PAMM Fund for African American Art.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Pérez Art Museum Miami exists to improve the quality of life for individual residents of and visitors to Miami-Dade County, as well as social life in the communities they represent, by facilitating catalytic engagements with the most progressive visual arts of our time.

Key institutional goals that PAMM seeks to accomplish are:

Goal 1 ­ Exhibitions: Create an innovative, internationally significant exhibition program founded on interdisciplinary work in art practice, art criticism, art history and museology, leveraging the diverse cultures that distinguish Miami.

Goal 2 – Education: Create a spectrum of progressive educational programs to engage audiences of all ages throughout the diverse communities of Miami­-Dade and in the virtual realm.

Goal 3 – Collections: Expand the permanent collection with first­rate art that parallels in era the growth of our region and reflects in national origin Miami's cultural diversity.

Goal 4 – Programming: Promote the unique potentials of the modern and contemporary art museum as a dynamic influential social forum.

PAMM developed a five-year Strategic Plan covering the period 2017-22.

Primary areas of focus in the plan include:
Exhibitions – Create an innovative, internationally significant exhibition program founded on interdisciplinary work in art practice, art criticism, art history and museology, which leverages the diverse cultures that distinguish Miami by responding to the interests, needs, and concerns of beneficiaries.

Education – Create a spectrum of progressive educational programs to engage audiences of all ages throughout the diverse communities of Miami-Dade and in the virtual realm in order to highlight new knowledge, critical frames, and interpretive and communication strategies.

Collections – Expand the permanent collection with paradigmatic examples of progressive art that parallels in era the growth of our region and reflects in national origin Miami's cultural diversity.

Social Forums – Promote the unique potentials of the modern and contemporary art museum as a dynamic and influential social forum.

Resources – Ensure that PAMM has the appropriate facility, financial and municipal resources to support its evolving functions.

Assessment – Engage all levels of leadership in matching regularly updated objectives, strategies, and outcomes to performance indicators that will specifically and annually measure progress toward our goals; and in longitudinal studies to gauge broader institutional impacts.

PAMM's total economic impact can be estimated at more than $24 million, using Americans for the Arts' Arts and Economic Prosperity IV calculator. PAMM's service population has more than tripled following the move in 2013 to its new home in Miami's Museum Park.

The focal point of PAMM's onsite activities is the exhibition schedule. The selection of artists, collections, and commissioned projects for PAMM is guided by the Museum's mission to create dialogues across and through local, regional, and international contexts. PAMM emphasizes artists and projects that engage with traditions from the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and is particularly attuned to the work of local artists and designers. In 2016, PAMM launched the Inside|Out program, displaying high­ quality reproductions of works from PAMM's collection in public spaces in three Miami neighborhoods that are geographically distant from the museum. Inside|Out takes PAMM directly into the community and reaches people who may never have visited a museum. Funded by the Knight Foundation, this program has been implemented in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Akron.

PAMM displays its permanent collection in six Overview Galleries. During the grant period, PAMM will present at least twelve temporary exhibitions in its changing galleries. These exhibitions will span a variety of media (painting, sculpture, video, installation, photography), and will highlight artists from countries including Cuba, Jamaica, Australia, Argentina, and the United States, as well as Miami­ based artists. Artists to be highlighted include Julio Le Parc, John Dunkley, Toba Khedoori, and Dara Friedman.

PAMM's education and outreach programs tie directly into the exhibitions on display, with most offered free of charge to reduce barriers to participation. Programs include:

Knight Schools Program, serving approximately 27,000 public school children. The program offers free buses and free museum admission for third grader, public school groups. PAMM Teaching Artists engage students in lively discussions of art on display, while addressing key State of Florida curricular benchmarks for the visual arts. PAMM also offers professional development workshops for approximately 300 teachers each school year. Classroom resources including lesson plans and video tours are available on PAMM's website, free of charge, at pamm.org/learn.

Second Saturdays, free admission days including hands­ on arts activities for children and families, on the second Saturday of each month. Over 35,000 people attended Second Saturdays during 2014, including over 8,000 children.

First Thursdays also free admission days, which include evening programs of music, performance, film/video, and literature/poetry. Directed at an adult audience, these programs attract an average of 700 people each month.
