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/
