  • 5 Exhibits You Must See

    The Pérez Art Museum Miami, 1103 Biscayne Blvd., is the newest landmark to rise on the shores of Biscayne Bay, transforming the city’s downtown skyline. Formerly the Miami Art Museum, the $131 million facility opened last month during Art Basel and Art Week Miami and promises to elevate Miami’s arts scene year-round, with more than 200,000 square feet of programmable indoor and outdoor exhibition space. In addition to galleries, the museum houses a library, auditorium, classrooms, art and digital media workshops, a restaurant and museum shop. Admission is free on the first Thursday and second Saturday of each month. Among the current exhibitions are: Ai Weiwei: According to What? (through March 16), Amelia Peláez: The Craft of Modernity (through Feb. 23) and Americana (through May 1). One of the museum’s most striking exhibition is the installation of historic sailing vessels created by Hew Locke and hanging from the ceiling of the entry. For more information, go to PAMM.org.
