2019 Fingerman Lecture Series: The Changing Role of Museums

This series is made possible through generous gifts by Louis and Lois Fingerman. The artists and scholars who have spoken at the Art Center have enriched the understanding of the works of art collected here, as well as provided the opportunity for the community to become familiar with ideas and topics embodied in the art of our time. We invite the community to join us for these presentations and hope the resulting conversations promote curiosity, further critical and empathetic thinking, and inspire dialogue outside the museum.

Franklin Sirmans


In this lecture, Sirmans will talk about how this unique backdrop has played, and continues to play, a key role in how the museum defines its mission and vision in the 21st Century. Today, with a lead role in the international discussion on diversity in collections, exhibitions, and audience, Perez Art Museum Miami highlights its relationship to the city and county’s diverse and dynamic community. Making the arts of Latin America and the Caribbean a focal point, while looking toward the African diaspora, PAMM is a unique voice in today’s discussion of American Art museums. Additionally, as a museum with a short history, PAMM utilizes unique methods to create new audiences for modern and contemporary art.

This series is made possible through generous gifts by Louis and Lois Fingerman.
