Where: Milander Center for Arts and Entertainment in Hialeah
When: Tonight, June 3rd from 5PM-8PM
Over the past few years, South Florida has undoubtedly welcomed a burgeoning arts scene, from the street art in Wynwood to the growing popularity of local music venues. The recently renamed and relocated Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has undoubtedly helped usher in this revitalized interest, and now, with the help of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, it’s all coming to three South Floridian centers in the form of the acclaimed Inside|Out exhibit.
Kicking off today, the Inside|Out Art Walk will welcome South Floridians to an evening of art, music, food, and of course, fun! Funded by the Knight Foundation and taking place in three other regions nationwide, Inside|Out brings “high quality” reproductions of museums’ exhibits to community centers. For anyone who’s never visited PAMM, perhaps due to financial or transportation issues, they’ll be able to see some of the museum’s permanent exhibits at no cost at all, including works by the renowned Roy Lichtenstein and Faith Ringgold, among many others.
From an art tour to making art yourself, there’s almost too much to do in just three hours. This is not to mention there’ll be food trucks on site – you’ll have to carve out some time to try out some unique cuisine. And with the Colombian DJ Ephinko spinning some sweet tunes, there’s always enough time to get down.
With so much going on, taking photos is a must, and the Inside|Out organizers know it. This is why they’re hosting a contest on Instagram, where Art Walk goers can post their best photos by tagging @pammpics and hashtagging #InsideOutUSA for the chance to win an iPad Mini 2 and a PAMM membership. PAMM members enjoy exclusive events, early access to special exhibits, and more. So, whip out your smart phones and start snapping – it’s a contest definitely worth entering. Submissions will be accepted starting tonight, June 3rd, until June 12th.
PAMM’s Inside|Out exhibits will be on display at the Milander Center for Arts and Entertainment in Hialeah, Losner Park in Homestead, and Hammocks and Olympic Park in West End. While the official Art Walk at Milander is this evening, you’ll be able to visit the exhibit starting from this month all the way to September of this year.
