MIAMI – The Pérez Art Museum Miami( PAMM) is hosting a fun-filled afternoon of artist studio visits, art-making activities, music, and brews for the museum’s Inside|Out Open Studio Celebration at the Laundromat Art Space in Little Haiti, 5900 NE 2nd Ave, the cultural heart for the Haitian Diaspora in Miami.
On Saturday, Aug. 25 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. attendees can participate in an artmaking activity related to the Emilio Sanchez reproductions installed at Laundromat, as well as rolling studio visits of Laundromat’s 13 resident artists: Jay Bellichi, Pablo Contrisciani, Marina Gonella, Juan Henriquez, David McCauley, Andres Martinez, Christin Paige Minnotte, Lily Noches, Reginald O’Neal, Luna Palazzolo, Erin Parish, Ronald Sanchez, and Lisu Vega.
Inside|Out, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, brings highquality reproductions of works from PAMM’s permanent collection to communities throughout Miami-Dade County. 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 Knight Foundation is providing $2 million over three years to expand Inside|Out to communities across the country, including Charlotte, North Carolina, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Akron, Ohio.
In April 2018, PAMM kicked off its third year of Inside|Out. Four communities were chosen for this year’s round of installations that kicked off in spring 2018 in Ironside and the Village of Pinecrest. During the summer, the reproductions have been on rotation at City of Doral and Little Haiti.
A calendar of related events and programs, including a free community weekend, can be found at pamm.org/insideout. Residents and community members are encouraged to share their Inside|Out experiences on social media with #PAMMInsideOut. For more information, visit pamm.org.
