MIAMI – Westwind Lakes Park has been transformed into an outdoor art museum as part of Commissioner Juan C. Zapata’s collaboration with the Pérez Art Museum Miami’s Inside|Out project, which is bringing reproductions of a number of artworks from PAMM’s collection to public parks.

Ten avantgarde paintings are being displayed on stand-up frames throughout the park for the public’s viewing pleasure.

Earlier this year, the West End was selected as one of three areas, along with Hialeah and Homestead, to take part in the project, with displays installed at Hammocks Community Park, Olympic Park, and Kendale Lakes Library. The new displays at Westwind Lakes Park, located at 6805 SW 152nd Ave., are part of the project’s second phase.

“These attractive artworks will enhance residents’ enjoyment of the park by creating unexpected and visually striking outdoor art encounters,” said Commissioner Zapata, who represents the West End.

As part of the project, West End residents will receive free admission to PAMM with proof of residence during Labor Day weekend, Sept. 3-5.
