Art Wynwood is back! Following its widely acclaimed inaugural edition, the Art Wynwood art fair will return for its second year during Presidents’ Day Weekend (February 14–18, 2013) in the Wynwood neighborhood or Miami. Art Wynwood will take place in the spacious 100,000-square-foot Art Miami Pavilion, which attracted more than 60,000 attendees during the 2012 edition of Art Miami.
Showcasing a diverse range of fresh and edgy works by established and emerging international contemporary artists from more than 13 countries, Art Wynwood continues to shine a spotlight on Midtown Miami and the Wynwood Arts District as a flourishing international cultural destination and the epicenter of Miami’s art, fashion, design, and culinary communities.
Guests at the exclusive VIP Preview on Valentine’s Day, February 14, will experience a first view of the highly anticipated Art Wynwood fair during a private reception.
A main feature of the 2013 Fair will be the highlight of street art, murals, pop surrealism, and other genres from the contemporary underground movement exemplified by two very special projects by Wynwood Walls, including a stunning wrap around installation suspended above the VIP Lounge by artist Jesse Geller (aka Nemel), in honor of the late Tony Goldman. In addition to the installation by Jesse Geller, Wynwood Walls will also present a curated exhibit featuring specially commissioned lenticulars with the original paintings by selected artists of the Wynwood Walls installed in the intermediary spaces throughout Art Wynwood. Artists participating include: Aiko, Ron English, Logan Hicks, Futura, Swoon, Kenny Scharf, and How & Nosm.
Art Wynwood will begin with a VIP Preview on Thursday, Feb. 14 and continues through Monday, Feb. 18, in the Art Miami Pavilion.
