The Season Launch Party this year is a virtual trip to Brazil, coinciding with the Grand Opening of Perez Art Museum Miami’s (PAMM) new exhibition: Beatriz Milhazes: Jardim Botântico.
Renew your membership or join now for exclusive free access* to the museum exhibition and our private event on the PAMM terrace at the opening. Our party will feature a private viewing (open to PAMM members) of the new exhibition; a bar featuring complimentary Leblon caipirinha, Heineken and Salton wines; light bites from PAMM’s wonderful Starr Caterers; and an amazing silent auction.
The opening party features the Miami debut of Brazilian band Alma Tropicalia. The DC-based band reimagines the psych-samba sounds of 60’s tropicália music from Brazil, a mind-bending mix of tropical rhythms, soulful funk grooves and day-glo psychedelia that has quickly earned the group ecstatic reviews and packed performances across the region. The band’s daring lineup combines the masterful Brazilian jazz vocalist Elin (featured on Thievery Corporation’s Brazil-inspired album “Saudade”) with the unhinged experimentation of some of the top backing musicians in today’s rock and world music scene (featuring members of Cyro Baptista’s Beat the Donkey, Bio Ritmo, and more). Between sets enjoy Brazilian grooves from DJ Marcello Bentine.
* PAMM will be open to the general public with regular museum admission. The Milhazes galleries will open to the public that evening at 7pm.
