Pérez Art Museum Miami
Miami is renowned for its tropical climate, glimmering beaches, and thriving diversity, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami has weaved itself into that unique atmosphere with representative architecture and exhibitions. With a paradisal museum park, and a hanging garden canopy above the terrace, visiting this museum is as much an experience with nature as it is art. The inside, though, remains the highlight.
Exhibitions at the museum feature cross-cultural art from the Caribbean, the United States, Latin America and beyond, and particularly contemporary works of the 20th and 21st centuries. Beyond the displays, these works unite with a truly fantastic public programme calendar that creates education events for all. These events continue the museum’s mission to engender visual, cultural, and environmental discussion with Miami and the world at large, and has ensured the museum become an important, intrinsic pillar of the local community. This museum is therefore a wonderful insight to Miami culture for locals and visitors alike.
A contemporary, casual restaurant and bar with sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, Verde, part of the STARR group, is a must visit for anyone in their area, visiting the museum or not. Chef Nicolay Adinaguev ensures that the seasonal menu is always fresh, with locally inspired dishes. The bar also serves a changing selection of handcrafted speciality cocktails, as well as hand-chosen wines. Verde also holds a quick-service selection of coffees and snacks.
This shop is a real gem. It’s filled with unique gifts and design objects from Miami and the Americas, much of it handmade and independently distributed. Almost an extension of the museum, it showcases these artist-designed furnishings, alongside ecologically and socially conscious products, and plenty of relevant books and publications. A beautiful, guilt-free place to purchase beautiful, guilt-free items.
