Calendar: “Miami Stories” at PAMM

Event Description

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), HistoryMiami Museum, and WLRN are partnering on a special project to preserve and record the history of Cuban exiles living in South Florida, in connection with PAMM’s latest exhibition, On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection.

Inspired by HistoryMiami Museum’s “Miami Stories” program, the collaboration invites members of the Cuban exile community to share their personal memories and experiences at a series of upcoming PAMM Free Second Saturdays events. HistoryMiami and WLRN will be on site during the events with a recording booth, operated by an interviewer asking a series of questions, to capture voices from Miami’s Cuban exile community.

The recordings will become a permanent part of HistoryMiami’s ongoing program, “Miami Stories.” The edited recordings will be made accessible at WLRN.org in 2018.
