MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Art Basel is over for another year.
Its success points to how thriving the art scene is here in South Florida.
The Perez Art Museum Miami is a part of it all.
CBS4’s Rudabeh Shahbazi got perspective in an extended one-on-one interview with Franklin Sirmans, PAMM’s new director.
Sirmans is described by many as a rock star and game changer in the contemporary art world.
He came from Los Angeles where he worked as a curator. He’s also worked in Houston, New Orleans and Brooklyn.
Now his challenge in Miami will be to attract donors.
