The forecast is in: school’s out and summer is in full force. Although most of us still have a weekday commute to get to, that’s all the more reason to make the most of our beautiful South Florida weekends. But with so much to do, you might find yourself sitting at the wheel wondering where to go.
So this weekend, get in and GO explore some specially hand-picked spots South Florida has to offer. Let’s start with the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM).
Since opening its doors in December 2013 during Art Basel, the PAMM is slowly but firmly planting its roots as a South Florida must-see. Located between the American Airlines Arena and the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami’s Downtown district, the impressive 200,000 sq. ft indoor and outdoor grounds feature a breathtaking view overlooking Biscayne Bay. Designed by Swedish design firm Herzog and de Meuron, the space itself is a work of art. From the lush hanging garden adorning the outside terrace; perfect for admiring when you relax on one of the many lounge chairs, to the delicious waterfront restaurant and bar, Verde that redefines the refrigerated sandwiches we’re used to at other museum shops.
As for the art itself, the PAMM features an immense collection of both international and local artists. In its current exhibitions including, Caribbean: Crossroads of the World and Edouard Duval-Carrie’s Imagined Landscapes among others, we see a delicate balance between highlighting the cultures that compose South Florida along with international modern art. What makes PAMM so perfect for a weekend afternoon visit, is that the art – while breathtaking and impressive – somehow remains accessible and understandable to audiences of all ages.
So get in and GO to the Pérez Art Museum Miami this weekend. And while you’re at it, GO to your local South Florida Ford dealer for a summer special so good, you might want to stop by on your way to the museum.
