TALK Miami Student Activities
TALK Miami student activities for March include visiting some fascinating South Florida heritage and art institutions. There are so many places to see and things to do that our TALK English schools in Miami always can find something new to add to the monthly student activities schedule.
Student Activities for TALK Miami in March
The Perez Art Museum Miami (known as PAMM), which opened in 2013 in downtown Miami, is part of the city’s ascent as an international art capital. It is also one of major cultural institutions that is named after its patron, Argentinean-born Jorge Perez, who emigrated from his adopted home in Colombia to the USA, and went on to found one of the most successful real estate development firms in Miami.
Here students will get to see much of Perez’ personal art collection as well as newly acquired contemporary art from newer artists in Latin America and North America, and beyond. Perez has had a lifelong passion for Latin American art, and where better to showcase his paintings by Wilfredo Lam, Diego Rivera and other famous Hispanic artists than in downtown Biscayne Bay area of the latest contemporary art hub.
Not only will our students learn about Latin American art: the museum focuses on 20th and 21st Century International art.
The building is a stunning 3 story, 200,000 square foot edifice boasting tall glass windows, and hydroponic hanging gardens cascading down the sides of the museum.
In contrast to the ultra-modern, contemporary and multicultural experience of PAMM, the other museum which is on our TALK student activities schedule this month is a visit to The Barnacle House Museum. Like the Perez Museum, the Barnacle House overlooks Biscayne Bay, but further around the bay adjoining Coconut Grove. The barnacle House was built by a Florida pioneer and boat lover, Commodore Ralph Munroe, in 1891, and represents old Florida. The indigenous hardwood hammock which surrounds the house is a naturalist’s dream. Students will love the quiet and elegant beauty and old-fashioned charm of the Barnacle Home and Park.
TALK Miami student activities for March promise our students fascinating insights into South Florida’s cultural heritage.
