  • Seeking Artists for Wynwood Contest

    Miami Parking Authority and Beefree Media are announcing their partnership with the first edition of Wynwood’s Park-Your-Art contest. Seven artists will be chosen to publicly paint an artwork on the seven pay parking meters in Wynwood. This opportunity will allow artists to gain exposure by revitalizing a seemingly over-looked street element. 

    The 2015 Wynwood’s Park-Your-Art contest seeks either emerging or established artists to submit an original artwork proposal that falls under this year’s theme, “IHeart305.” The theme embodies a message of love towards the community in which the artwork must answer: “What do you love about Miami?” 

    “I think that being involved with the community is important. By including art on our equipment, artists have a new object to become a part of,” said Alejandra Argudin, chief operations officer of Miami Parking Authority. “This is our chance to collaborate with artists and represent Miami in such an artsy place like Wynwood.” 

    Artwork will be judged upon the following criteria: originality of content, technique and creative interpretation of theme. Winners will be designated one parking meter which they will paint live on Nov. 19, 2015. In addition, the meter will be covered with an anti-graffiti lamination so the design will stay fresh and unharmed.  

    “This is a chance for artists to get involved with companies like us; we are here to support your vision and you can legally create something beautiful,” said Stuart Lujan, owner of Beefree Media.  

    The artwork will be visible for the 2015 Miami Art Basel season and will remain displayed until the following Wynwood’s Park-Your-Art contest. 

    Miami Parking Authorityand Beefree Media encourage people from throughout the U.S. to participate, get creative and engage the community. Submissions close on Friday, Oct. 23, 2015. For information on eligibility and how to enter, please visit http://beefreemedia.com/parkyourart/

  • The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Announces 2015 Light the Night Walk Chair

    Arthur “Art” Noriega, Chief Executive Officer, Miami Parking Authority, will serve as the Corporate Walk Chair for the 2015 Miami Light The Night Walk on Saturday, November 7th. The event supports the Southern Florida & Puerto Rico Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, whose mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

    As part of his leadership, Noriega has challenged Miami Parking Authority employees to raise $10,000 over the next 10 months to help fund blood cancer research. Miami Parking Authority is the first company to commit to supporting the 2015 Walk, and the announcement became official on World Cancer Day taking place across the globe on February 4, 2015.

    “We’re proud to support the Light The Night Walk. It’s the perfect way to share our commitment to our community,” said Noriega. “This Walk is a great complement to the excellent care and service provided by our local cancer-treatment hospitals.”

    “We are thrilled to have Art’s leadership as the Chairman of the 2015 Light The Night Walk,” said Emily Marquez-Dulin, Executive Director, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Southern Florida & Puerto  Rico Chapter. “With such a respected and knowledgeable chairman leading the way, we expect that local businesses and individuals will jump on the bandwagon and support the fight against cancer in our community.”

    The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society kicks off the 2015 Light The Night Walk awareness campaign and fundraising season on World Cancer Day with a call to join the fight against cancer.  Miami residents are asked to visit www.lightthenight.org/sfl and sign-up to walk today. “The more time participants have to get familiar with the Walk details, the more successful they will be as fundraisers and the more they can contribute to the cause,” explained Noriega.

    The 2015 Miami Light The Night Walk will take place Saturday, November 7th at Bayfront Park. This is the 13th year of the event, which raised over $650,000 last year. This year’s goal is to raise $700,000 for cancer-related programs and research. Individuals and companies interested in sponsoring or attending can call 954‑744-5311 or visit www.lightthenight.orf/sfl.
