Pérez Art Museum Miami Announces Six New Communities for PAMM Inside|Out, Funded by Knight Foundation

Program to Kick off in Spring 2017

MIAMI – January 17, 2017 – This February, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will kick off its second year of Inside|Out, a program funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation which brings high-quality reproductions of art from the museum’s permanent collection to the community. PAMM issued a call to participants to host this year’s Inside|Out program and received 17 applications from communities all over Miami-Dade County. Six communities were chosen for this year’s round of installations that will kick off this spring in Biscayne Park, Opa-Locka and Overtown. Over the summer, the reproductions will rotate to Little Haiti, North Miami Beach and Surfside.

From Fernando Botero to Edouard Duval-Carrié, 50 artists from PAMM’s permanent collection will be featured in each round of Inside|Out nearly twice as many as last year. Exact locations of each reproduction will be featured on maps available at host locations and at pamm.org/insideout.

“Being Miami-Dade County’s museum, it’s important for us to engage the community in unique ways. Inside Out brings a breath of fresh art to everyday life and fosters spontaneous interactions with art in the community,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “We’re honored to participate in this innovative program for the second year in a row and are excited to connect with each community in such an impactful way.”

“There’s something very powerful about seeing works of art in person. You become completely immersed. Inside Out brings that experience to people, directly in their communities. And an amazing thing happens: entire neighborhoods, entire communities, start to talk about art,” said Victoria Rogers, vice president for arts at Knight Foundation.

Miami is the fourth city to host Inside|Out, a program conceived by the Detroit Institute of Arts in 2010. It proved so successful in Detroit, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is providing $2 million over three years to expand Inside|Out to communities across the country, including Philadelphia and Akron, Ohio.

Biscayne Park, a neighborhood known for its tree‐lined medians and log cabin, will have 10 reproductions on view.

Opa-Locka, a historic city developed with the Arabian Nights theme, will feature 20 reproductions on view throughout the architectural Moorish city.
