Corporate Support Transforms Community through the Arts

On September 27, 2017, hundreds of South Florida’s most influential business leaders attended the Tenth Annual Corporate Luncheon, which honors the corporate community for its vital support of the arts in South Florida.

Watch PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans and luncheon chairs Deborah Koch and Oti Roberts explain why corporate support is so vital to PAMM’s arts education initiatives.

The PAMM Corporate Luncheon raises funds for the museum’s education programs. PAMM is the largest provider of art education outside of Miami-Dade County School District, reaching more than 160,000 children since opening in its new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in December 2013. Corporate support has made many of these free educational programs possible, including: free family activities every second Saturday; Art Detectives, a new education program that promotes critical and timely dialogue between community youth and police; Brick x Brick, a program for at-risk teens which takes place at community centers in underserved areas throughout Miami-Dade County, and focuses on architecture, design and community planning; and PAMM in the Neighborhood, a summer camp program for underserved youth, among others.
