The Art Wynwood Fair Returns to Miami, 2/13-17


As Art Wynwood prepares to mount its third edition February 13-17, 2014, the distinctive contemporary art fair produced by Art Miami LLC is strengthening its commitment to the growing street art movement that has brought international renown to its namesake neighborhood. The fair’s run will once again span the long holiday weekend of Presidents Day and coincide with the 25th edition of the prestigious Miami International Yacht & Brokerage Show (located less than five miles from the Art Wynwood pavilion), which transforms Miami Beach’s legendary Collins Avenue into a multimillion-dollar promenade of yachts and draws an upscale audience from around the globe. The second edition of Art Wynwood attracted more than 26,500 art collectors, curators and connoisseurs during its five-day run, with 6,100 collectors and art enthusiasts attending the VIP Private Preview on February 14, 2013.

Since the fair’s inception in 2012, a central feature has been its highlight of street art, murals, pop surrealism and other genres from the contemporary underground movement. By presenting these cutting-edge forms in a refined atmosphere alongside contemporary artworks in a broad range of mediums and styles, Art Wynwood is perfectly positioned to advance the growing worldwide recognition of this movement.

Now Art Wynwood is furthering this mission and expanding its international influence with a collaboration with Cash, Cans & Candy, an international festival of street art from Vienna, Austria. Curator Katrin-Sophie Dworczak of Cash, Cans & Candy has lined up an international who’s who of street artists to create original works onsite. A pop-up installation of some of the artwork will be showcased in the lobby of the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, a sponsor of CC & C, in downtown Miami during the fair. Artists include Douglas Hoekzeman and Brandon Opalka, both Miami locals; Stinkfish of Colombia / Mexico; The Stencil Network and Alexis Diaz of Puerto Rico; and Stephen Tompkins of Cleveland.

Art Wynwood shines a spotlight on Midtown Miami and the Wynwood Arts District as a year-long flourishing international cultural destination. The fair will continue to distinguish the Wynwood Arts District as Miami’s epicenter where artfashion, design and the culinary arts intersect.
