The Wynwood Walls is a community revitalization concept conceived by Tony Goldman in 2009 as a way to transform the warehouse district of Wynwood, Miami into a center where people could gravitate and explore, thereby developing the area’s pedestrian potential.
Initially opened in 2010 with the Wynwood Doors, the project has since expanded to the Wynwood Walls and Outside the Walls. Street artists from all over the world have gone to Miami to participate and it has become a sort of “Museum of the Streets,” as coined by Jeffrey Deitch, one of the original co-curators.
This year over at Wynwood Walls, are planning several new mural collabs featuring teams like Shepard Fairey, Cleon Peterson, Pose Revok, Haas Hahn and Faith 47 Alexis Diaz. Also, Swoon and Case will each contribute solo works and Kenny Scharf is updating his existing mural.
During Art Basel there will be a tour of the outdoor street art museum, the Wynwood Walls, with CEO of the property, Jessica Goldman Srebnick.
