(Miami, FL — October 3, 2019) — Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to present the twelfth annual Corporate Luncheon, presented by Constellation Culinary Group, on October 23, 2019, 11am–2pm. The museum’s established networking event hosts South Florida’s most influential business leaders in honor of their continued support of Miami’s arts community and will feature programming highlighting the theme of art and technology. Reservations can be made online at pamm.org/CL12.

“We are proud to once again celebrate the important relationship between Miami’s corporate community and its arts institutions,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “We are repeatedly grateful for the Miami business community’s vital support of PAMM, and look forward to continuing to build on this relationship.”

Program speakers include: Chris Barr of the Knight Foundation, Felicia Hatcher of Black Tech Week, Amy Renshaw of Code/Art, artist Leo Castaneda, Diego Berta of Magic Leap Inc., Creative Fusionist Asta Roseway of Microsoft, and PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans.

Featuring an inventive menu by Constellation Culinary Group, this year’s luncheon will give attendees the opportunity to network and explore the museum’s newest exhibition, Teresita Fernández: Elemental, which opens on October 18, 2019, and will feature more than 50 of the artist’s large-scale sculptures, installations, drawings, and wall works created over two decades.

All funds from the luncheon will go toward the museum’s art and education outreach programs, the largest in Miami-Dade County outside the public school system. Corporate support has made many of these free programs possible, which include: free family activities every second Saturday; Made at PAMM, a weekly art-making program centered on the museum’s current exhibitions; Art Detectives, an arts education program that promotes critical and timely dialogue between community youth and police; Brick x Brick, a program for at-risk teens which takes place at community centers in underserved areas throughout Miami-Dade, and focuses on architecture, design and community planning; PAMM in the Neighborhood, a summer camp program for underserved youth; and more.
