Contraâ€™s Wynwood initiative is taking place under the wing of Primary Flight, featuring a collaborative mural with artists Tristan Eaton, Ron English, Dalek, Tes One, Bask and Glen Barr at Butter Gallery (2303 NE Second Avenue, Miami).
Southbound, organizers have gained control of the RC Cola plant courtesy of Metro I Properties, where more than 80 Primary Flight artists are slated to paint its interiors and exterior (550 NW 24th Street, Miami). To the north, Primary Flight will also be growing into the Design District, developing murals on both sides of the Tuttle Wall on Biscayne Boulevard at 36th Street.
Primary Flight, the Wynwood Arts District Association, and the City of Miami anticipate inducting 30+ murals into the inaugural Wynwood Mural Museum (wynwoodmuralmuseum.org). Murals erected in the last four years and iconic pieces that have since been covered will be featured on a map dedicated to street art and on the official website, to be unveiled during Art Basel.
Select Primary Flight 2010 participants include: Askew, Bask, Burning Candy, Charles Craft, Cruz, Tristan Eaton, El Mac, Escif, Shepard Fairey, Herakut, Logan Hicks, Anthony Lister, Nunca, Revok, Remed, Reyes, Santiago Rubino, Stormie Mills, Tatiana Suarez, Tackz, Tes One, The London Police, Michael Vasquez and many secret guests will be announced daily. Roughly 135 artists are scheduled to descend upon Miami to lift-off with Primary Flight this December.
