The Perez Art Museum Miami not only hosts some of the most exciting contemporary modern art pieces under one roof, but the building itself is a water-front gem with breathtaking views.
Located on Biscayne Boulevard, this three-story, 200K square foot building is the absolute pawfect place to spend a leisurely afternoon.
And that is exactly what I did!
What other museum do you know of where the outside is almost cooler than what’s inside? The Perez Art Museum property and landscape is reason enough for visit!
Water views of the bay? Check.
Charming details in every corner? Check.
Hanging vertical gardens? Check, check, check!
The space inside the museum is illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows. It allows a ton of natural light in but also gives you some beautiful glimpses of the city from every window.
Julio Le Parc
During my visit, I was lucky enough that Argentinean artist, Julio Le Parc, was showcasing over 100 of his pieces in the Form into Action exhibit.
Over the course of his sixty-year career, Le Parc has focused his art on the study of light, movement and perception, with the sole purpose of engaging and inspiring interaction with the spectator.
I must say, I was totally drawn into all the art.
Talk about a new and surreal world!
Feeling Totally Artsy
The museum is full of all sorts of different types of art pieces. What most of them have in common is that they are modern, contemporary and created by artists from all around Latin America. MUY CALIENTE!!
Make sure you allocate a proper 3 hours or more of your day for your museum tour as there are many installations that are interactive. You are bound to loose track of time!
The Perez Art Museum Miami is semi-pet-friendly. This means: Dogs are allowed in the terrace and on the outside property but only service dogs are allowed inside.
Why was I allowed in? Because I totally got VIP treatment and had my very own private tour…It’s a dogs life, but somebody’s gotta live it!
