Miami Art Museum Opens Jorge M. Perez Collection

. April 11, 2013

A selection of works from the Jorge M. Pérez art collection, gifted to the Museum December 2011, is now on view at Miami Art Museum for the first time. More than 500 attended the Wednesday, March 13 opening reception and preview of Frames of Reference: Latin American Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Art Collection. Museum Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander and Pérez discussed the development of the collection during a conversation, which was simulcast in the lobby to accommodate the sold out, overflowing crowd. The exhibition is the last in the Museum’s current space and marks the start of its transition to its new Herzog & de Meuron-designed facility in Museum Park where it will reopen as Pérez Art Museum Miami in honor of Pérez’s now $40 million gift of cash and art.
