21 Apr Art Detectives in the News
Art Detectives, an educational program based out of Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), has made it a goal to dispel young people’s fears of police and foster better relationships between the two groups. For the past four years, the program has used art in creating engaging activities that spark much-needed dialogue, proving that talking about these issues is one of the most important steps to take in moving forward.
“Young people today are having to witness and experience things that certainly, in my generation, I didn’t even have a clue of. I think they have become jaded, and at some level, they have become a little numb,” said Donna Ginn, co-founder of the program and a member of the Greater Miami chapter of The Links, a Black women-led, public service volunteer organization that serves women, children and the elderly.
