The MADE team from Berlin is currently in Miami for Art Basel and Design Miami. We will follow them on their footsteps through out the week, as they discover the city, check out the latest exhibitions, meet some artists and more. First up is their visit to the Wynwood Walls project, which originally opened its doors in 2009.
“Murals by renowned street artists have covered the walls of the Wynwood Walls complex since 2009, and to create more canvases and bring more artists to the project, Tony opened the Wynwood Doors in 2010 with 176 feet of roll-up storefront gates. The Wynwood Walls has brought the world’s greatest artists working in the graffiti and street art genre to Miami. Jeffrey Deitch co-curated the first successful year of the project in 2009.”
