Tenth Annual Art of the Party

Pérez Art Museum Miami Announces Tenth Annual Art of the Party, Presented by Tiffany & Co.

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to present the tenth annual Art of the Party, the museum’s largest fundraiser of the year, on Saturday, November 11, 2023. Presented by Tiffany & Co., the event will honor Darlene and Jorge Pérez for their dedication to the arts and the Miami community. Art of the Party features live music, a cocktail reception, and a seated dinner. The awardee of the fifth annual Pérez Prize, which recognizes an artist for artistic achievement, will also

be announced at the event.

“We are delighted to come together again with our community to celebrate and support our institution’s arts education programs. From interactive school tours and extensive outreach programs, to lively talks and performances, we strive to be steadfast in our mission to position art as a genuine connection,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “We could not do this without the unwavering patronage from Darlene and Jorge Pérez, who have not only provided support to the museum itself but to Miami’s arts ecosystem at large. We are truly grateful to honor their contributions at the Tenth Annual Art of the Party.”

“As passionate advocates for the arts and Miami, we’re committed to nurturing the city’s cultural vibrancy,” said Jorge M. Pérez, internationally recognized philanthropist and founder of the Pérez Family Foundation. “Art has the incredible ability to bridge gaps, inspire change, and unite people. Through our support and partnership with PAMM, we empower artists, engage residents, and celebrate Miami's diversity. Darlene and I are excited for the future and thankful for the opportunity to make a lasting impact.”

Art of the Party celebrates Miami’s flagship art museum by bringing together cultural philanthropists, artists, civic leaders, and arts supporters from around the world. Funds from Art of the Party directly

support the museum’s robust arts education program, the largest of its kind outside the Miami-Dade

County Public Schools system with over 215,000 children served since opening in December 2013.

Sponsorships and dinner tickets are sold out at this time. REMIX After Party tickets ($300) are still

available, and can be purchased on PAMM’s website. For more information, please contact Sabrina
