Purvis Young at Miami Art Museum -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog



July 30 to November 7, 2010
MAM is having an exhibition of Purvis Young

One of my favorite museums is showing one of my favorite artists.  This is the first show of Purvis that MAM has ever put on.  In thinking about this exhibition I was struck by the fact that the present location of MAM (MAM is moving by 2013) is downtown Miami very close to Overtown Purvis' home.  The subject of Purvis' work through out his lifetime was the downtown area of Miami known as Overtown.  You can't get a more urban museum or artist anywhere in America.  It is nice to see the two have come together.  I can't wait to see how the museum handles the work.  GL
