In December 2013 the Miami Art Museum will reopen in downtown as the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). With the opening of the Herzog & de Meuron-designed facility, and that of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science in 2015, Museum Park will be transformed into a central destination on Miami’s cultural map.
The Museum’s collection now numbers more than 1,300 works. In 2013 the Museum acquired approximately 300 works from the collection of Dennis and Debra Scholl, which range from painting and sculpture to video and photography. As part of his gift to the Museum’s capital campaign in 2011, Jorge M. Pérez, for whom the new Museum is named, gifted a portion of his collection to its permanent collection.
