Urban Art Block Party to Debut in Wynwood

December 3 – 6, 2015

Presented by Mana Urban Arts Project, Bushwick Collective, and Basel House

 
 

This December at the Mana Wynwood campus, the Mana Urban Arts Project and the Bushwick Collective have teamed up at the iconic RC Cola Plant overlooking the I-95 in Miami. Building on the success of Mana Urban Arts Project’s efforts to bring internationally-recognized street artists to Jersey City, NJ, the Wynwood satellite will become an open air monument for the graffiti community. To celebrate this historic occasion, they partnered with Basel House to host a free, four-day block party during Art Basel Week in December.

The Bushwick Collective Block Party , presented by Mana Urban Arts Project and Basel House, will showcase all that embodies the street art form, and will feature live painting throughout the four-day event by some of the world’s top artists including: Ghost (New York), GIZ (New York), Case Maclaim (Germany), Shok1 (England), Atomik (Florida), Lola Blu (Florida), Crash One TATS CRU (New York), Don Rimx (Florida), Sipros (Brazil), James Cochran (Australia), AIKO (New York/Japan), SPOK (Spain), Hoxxoh (Florida), Trek6 (Florida), and more. These artists will transform the former RC Cola Plant with an entire series of new murals and paintings. In addition to the live art, there will be a series of DJs and live bands, breakdance performances, arts and craft vendors, and 50 of Miami’s best food trucks.

Curating the collaboration is artist Joe Ficalora, who started the Bushwick Collective on the streets of Brooklyn while he was coping with personal tragedy. Friends, neighbors, and even complete strangers all supported Ficalora’s first block party. The Collective transformed a large section of the Bushwick neighborhood into a colorful and vibrant work of urban art, with the help of several top artists, many of whom are making the trip to Miami to help launch the Wynwood location of the Mana Urban Arts Project.
