Art Wynwood Honors Shepard Fairey During Sixth Edition

By Eliza Jordan

February 24, 2017

Last weekend, Art Wynood in Miami celebrated its sixth edition, presented by Art Miami, with more than 60 international galleries. On view was the work of nearly 500 artists from 24 countries and 38 cities. Seeing a growth in visitors, 38,500 people attended, including prestigious art collectors, advisors, curators, and museum professionals.

The VIP preview and kickoff, sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate, was held on February 16 to benefit the Miami City Ballet. A performance art piece by Alian Martinez Rivas included a crew of cleaning workers wearing shirts that read “You Hired an Immigrant to Clean the Fair.” Artist Trey Speegle allowed everyone to take their turn at being an artist by holding a paint-by-number experience (limited edition prints are available on Twyla), and fashion designer and founder of The Creators Lab Luis Valenzuela showed one-of-a-kind headpieces inspired by works by Cuban painter Cundo Bermúdez.

The next day saw an awards dinner at db bistro modern to honor artist Shepard Fairey with the Art Wynwood | Tony Goldman Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award. Given in partnership with Wynwood Walls, the award—given by Art Miami LLC’s founder Nick Korniloff and Art Wynwood fair directors Grela Orihuela and Joey Goldman—recognizes those within the art world whose inventiveness has changed the industry. The special award was designed by Fairey’s friend Ryan McGuinness, and a portion of the dinner’s proceeds benefitted the Perry J. Cohen Foundation.

“Art Wynwood continues to prove that it is the most important winter contemporary art fair, offering both new and seasoned collectors the opportunity to acquire works from well-known and mid-career artists,” said Korniloff.
