Blog: Opa-Locka Residents Come out for Inside|Out Flashlight Tour and Festivities

On April 21, 2017, the PAMM Inside|Out team joined Opa-Locka's Paint Night to celebrate the works installed in the community as a part of PAMM Inside|Out 2017.

Opa-Locka residents enjoyed a night of art-making, live music, giveaways and a flashlight tour of the Inside|Out works installed throughout the community. Drawing inspiration from Jonathan Hernandez's Rongwrong XXIV, people were encouraged to make their own collages using magazines, yarn, glue and markers.

At sundown, the group set out for a flashlight tour of the high-quality reproductions installed around the community led by teaching artist David Lloyd. On the tour, participants learned about the works that are a part of the Inside|Out collection and how they exist within the community setting. 

Working with community partners around Miami-Dade County, PAMM Inside|Out installs high-quality reproductions of the museum’s permanent collection in outdoor environments. This program seeks to engage communities in the arts, creating accessibility and sparking dialogues between the community environment and works of art.
