The phrase “ If people can’t go to the museum…the museum will go to the people” captures the concept of PIAG Museum on Wheels. This mobile museum travels through the communities while advancing public appreciation of art at schools, universities, nursing homes and special events. By bringing art, music and workshops to all ages, from the youngsters with their rich imaginations to the senior citizens with their wisdom and life long experiences, we have successfully accomplished all our goals.

The idea of this Museum began one day after teaching some workshops at our program “Art In the Parks” . Besides reaching out to children and adults with art classes Mireya Power the Director of the museum thought that it will be a great idea to be able to bring paintings and sculptures to the participants in order to experience in full and learn about the different art forms and techniques.
The image of a mobile Museum was in her mind. Mireya and the vice president of the museum Martha Salas explained commissioner Joe A. Martinez that a mobile museum would be great for the community. Through a resolution Mr. Martinez, Miami Dade transit department donated the bus. Thanks Mr. Joe A. Martinez !
None of this would have been possible without your help and the help of Mrs. Esther Abolila, Mr. Rene Diaz and District 11 office
