The end of summer is upon us (finally), and even though our beach weather never ends, it’s still an occasion worth celebrating. Instead of the traditional backyard barbecue, however, PAMM is offering an alternative option: a Labor Day picnic.
The museum will have live tunes by Magic City Hippies, traditional eats and drinks, and plenty of art on exhibition.
“Pérez Art Museum Miami opens on Monday holidays so that people who are off of work can enjoy a day at the museum,” says PAMM Interim Director Leann Standish.
“The spacious, shaded terrace that wraps around the museum was designed to give the community with comfortable, outdoor gathering space, and I couldn’t think of a better way to mark the end of summer than with a picnic on Biscayne Bay! Visitors can experience Miami’s beautiful waterfront from the comfort of the shaded terrace, enjoy great food and live music, and wonder the galleries, exploring new exhibitions with friends and family.”
In addition to the music, there’ll be all kinds of new art on exhibition. Attendees can explore Project Gallery: Bik van der Pol (including talking parrots) and Poetics of Relation. Check out The School of the Forest by Marjetica Potrc, an installation highlighting elevated, open-air communal structures of the Amazonian rainforest; Nicolas Lobo’s mixed media sculptures cast inside a swimming pool; and Gary Simmons’ inscrutable mural.
