Wynwood Walls Lead Curator and Goldman Global Arts CEO/Co-Founder Jessica Goldman Srebnick, is excited to announce its 2023 Art Week artist lineup and theme – The Power of Purpose – highlighting Wynwood Walls as one of the best venues in the world to see leading street artists. Established in 2009 by the legendary place maker Tony Goldman as an outdoor museum for international street art, Wynwood Walls has become a phenomenon, earning the reputation of elevating the genre of street art around the globe and inspiring millions to embrace its beauty.
New to this year’s Art Week lineup, Wynwood Walls will reveal a reclaimed subway car as a permanent installation at the museum. This 48.5ft x 9.5ft immersive “art piece” finds its new home after completing a 1,000 mile journey from West Virginia to Wynwood, just in time for its Art Week debut. Here, it will serve as a fascinating installation for Miami locals and visitors to enjoy.
“This interactive work is meant to further deepen the understanding of where the journey of the street art movement and graffiti culture began as it will now sit in its new home, not on train tracks, but in an oasis of arts,” said Golman Srebnick about this colossal new acquisition.
Among the incredible line up of featured artists for 2023 are The London Police (United Kingdom); Greg Mike (Atlanta); Defer (Los Angeles); Shok1 (United Kingdom); Lauren Ys (Los Angeles); Leon Keer (Netherlands); Sandra Chevrier (Canada); and Mojo (Miami). Art in 3-D form will play a significant part in the curation of this year’s programming with new sculptures from Dan Lam (Dallas), whose sculptures use unconventional materials, and iconic Wynwood Walls’ artist Ron English (Hudson Valley) returns to bring his infamous character “Temper Tot” to life in the form of a 15-foot sculpture.
“As the lead curator for more than a decade, I scour the world – year after year – to find the most talented, creative, and passionate artists from all corners of the globe to bring their magic to Wynwood for millions to enjoy,” shares Goldman Srebnick. “Our goal is that a visit to the Wynwood Walls brings discovery, curiosity, inspiration and hope. In its thirteen years, the Wynwood Walls has helped ignite one of the largest art movements in history, launched careers and changed the paradigm of how people interact with art. We have been deeply committed to being a celebratory platform for artists of all ages, nationalities and genders.”
Exclusive artist events will also take place throughout the week, including sculpture unveilings by Dan Lam and Ron English, a solo exhibition inside the GGA Annex Gallery by international artist Kai, and the launch of Street Sessions – a 30-minute “Watch & Learn” session with artists as they paint new murals inside the Walls.
In the main Goldman Global Arts Gallery, guests will find canvas work of the over 100 artists that have graced the Wynwood Walls over the years and exclusive artist product collections in the Wynwood Walls Shop.
