MAM Closing Party BBQ

MAM Closing Party BBQSaturday, June 1, 7-10pm -  Cultural Center Plaza at Miami Art Museum, 101 W. Flagler Street, Miami

After more than 15 years of enhancing Miami’s cultural repertoire, Miami Art Museum closed its doors at Miami-Dade Cultural Center in preparation for its move to new, state-of-the-art facility in Museum Park, but not before bidding a proper farewell with a full-blown community BBQ. Hosted on Cultural Center Plaza on the eve of the Museum’s final day, this memorable “Lights Out” party was the last public event held at Miami Art Museum’s current facility. The evening featured bites by Sparky’s Roadside BBQ, and a DJ from HOT 97.7FM. The closing party was coordinated in collaboration with the nomadic artist project the end in conjunction with New Work Miami 2013, which, along with Frames of Reference: Latin American Art from the Jorge M. Perez Collection, was on view throughout the evening. Miami Art Museum will reopen as Pérez Art Museum Miami in downtown Miami’s Museum Park in December 2013.
