Miami Worldcenter promenade lined with art murals
In partnership with Miami Worldcenter, Art4All is providing an alternative for artists to share their work with the public in a way that is safe and accessible.
Art4All recently launched its public art fair in Miami featuring artists on more than 50 billboards throughout the city. Large art murals were placed along two blocks of downtown’s Miami Worldcenter pedestrian promenade, which is part of the development’s upcoming open-air, high-street retail paseo scheduled to premiere next year.
Located along Northeast First Avenue between Northeast 10th and 11th Streets, the 27-acre, 10-block long real estate development, still under construction, will be a city-within-a-city with public art being the key element of bringing every facet of the Worldcenter together to create a memorable experience for residents and visitors, said Nitin Motwani, managing partner of Miami Worldcenter Associates.
“Art4All is a perfect partner because we share a passion for bringing the beauty of art to everyone,” he said of the murals that are to be on display through the end of 2021. “We’ve dedicated an extraordinary amount of outdoor space for art installations and beautiful landscaping to create an inspiring environment for people to enjoy.”
Art4All was created by Cube Art Fair’s founder Gregoire Vogelsang as a creative solution to the widespread cancellations of art fairs around the world, like Art Basel. The art fair was initially launched in Brussels, Belgium, with 100 pieces of American art that were displayed around the city, including on buses, billboards and benches.
“We wanted to find creative ways to continue sharing art with the world and to inspire people to remain positive and to stay creative,” Mr. Vogelsang said.
The best art is usually seen by only a few who have access to exclusive fine art galleries and museums, Art4All co-founder Sean Wolfington added.
“We’re trying to change this, by exposing millions of people to art they may never see otherwise,” he said, “and we hope it inspires them to stay creative by finding solutions to the problems the pandemic has created in their lives.”
