Sometimes change is not only good but also worth celebrating. This Saturday, the annual Miami Art Museum Ball celebrates MAM’s 29th birthday and its upcoming new digs. Next December, the downtown Miami icon will be renamed the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and relocated to its new Museum Park facility overlooking Biscayne Bay, but for now, it continues to cap off Art Basel in its current home — for those of us who still have disposable income. Your $1,000 ticket grants you a waterfront-inspired dinner and dancing. If you feel even a twinge of guilt at the thought of spending a cool grand on such a frivolous evening, fear not — the funds raised are used to sustain MAM’s exhibition and education programs.
Sat., Dec. 8, 7 p.m.-midnight, 2012
