Today we went to the grand opening of the new PAMM. Here are some pictures of the new Perez Art Museum Miami in beautiful downtown Miami. In recent past we have been critical of the PAMM’s architectural direction, however after experiencing the new museum grounds in person, we will have to eat our words. The new Perez Art Museum is majestic in size. It’s prime location and museum setting, provides for endless photo opportunities for tourists and guests. So far, the one criticism we have is the lack of variety in the art work. Mostly focusing in modern and contemporary non representational art. However, we are counting on future traveling exhibitions to provide different art styles and genres to account for a multitude tastes. As far as the Architecture. it is not the landmark building we in Miami are hoping for, but it is impressive non of the less. Go to the Perez Art Museum Miami this Art Basel Week. It is free to all Miami-Dade residents. Best of all, valet parking is free! Enioy the pics. And follow us on Instagram for more Art Basel Week coverage. Our user name is @artofmiami.

Enjoy the pics! tag your own Art Basel pictures with hashtag #artofmiami for a chance to be featured on our Art Basel recap post.
This year D-Wade has been promoting his “Way of Wade “campaign heavily. We think that is why D-Wade decide to contribute to Art Basel Week with a “Make Your Own Way” mural in Wynwood. So much so, he went on to repost it on his Instagram page. The post blew up. Receiving 50,000 plus likes and hundreds of comments. Unfortunately he had not given credit to the UK artist Insa (@insa_gram) the creator on the post, so we at ArtofMiami helped out with that, posting a comment to clarify. Either way, it brought us pride to see Dwayne Wade share local art with his millions of followers and help boost awareness of the Wynwood Art District in Miami.

Just like museums have those self guided tour devices, so does Wynwood’s “outdoor museum” of murals. The new Wynwood Tour Guide App is launched just in time for Art Basel Weekend by developer Rokkstar inc. and David McCauley, founder of Rise Up Gallery. Being the hippest neighborhood in the city of Miami. With its vast collection of outdoor murals, trendy shops and Contemporary Art Galleries, a self-guide tour app has always been a tool in need for many. Well, it is now a reality. We downloaded the app and found it is developed professionally with clever useful features. The geo-location feature is one of the coolest part of the app. It points out your location and tells you the nearest mural in site, with short abstracts and artist’s bios of the artwork at hand. Nearby shops, art galleries and stores are also included.

(Wywnood Arts District- Miami, FL) – Brisky Gallery Miami is proud to present Affiliated: The Art of the Urban Experience; an exhibition curated by Luis Valle, Brisky Gallery’s Director in collaboration with Jesse Henderson. The show will reflect a diverse approach at creating work influenced by urban settings.
The exhibit will feature works by over 20 artists local, national and international. It will include a large yet cohesive range of work from painting, drawings, photography, sculpture and new media. “Affiliated”, is a result of the current movement in art, which reflects on the urban experience.
Many urban, street, muralist and as well as fine artists rely on certain affiliations in order to succeed and accomplish their goals. Whether they are traveling to a new city and need someone to show them around or maybe they need to locate a wall to paint, artist use their affiliations to get the job done. Artists are affiliated but not limited only to by crews, peers, countries, medium, sponsors, galleries and friends. Without this an artist job is much more difficult. This also reflects on the old saying, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Every connection leads to a new adventure and is part of the process of the artist’s creation.
This exhibit brings to Miami a solid lineup of artists who have a diverse background of both urban and fine artwork. Each artist is well known in their respective circles yet somehow were all affiliated by a different source.
