On Thursday, December 4, under the direction of Goldman Properties CEO Jessica Goldman Srebnick and arts manager Meghan Coleman, the Wynwood Walls Art Basel program for 2012 will debut. Honoring the passion and vision of founder Tony Goldman, who created this outdoor museum of street art with Jeffrey Deitch in 2009; events and exhibitions will invite the public to come and dream, and view the world through the eyes of a visionary. Among the new works and projects being unveiled are an exhibition of commissioned works entitled Time Evaporates, Emotion Elevates, featured works from the artists of Wynwood Walls including Kenny Scharf, Ron English, How&Nosm, Logan Hicks, Swoon, Futura and Aiko.

A new mural by acclaimed street artist Shepard Fairey will be unveiled – including iconic imagery of powerful men in history, with Tony Goldman at its centerpiece. And the GO! Shop, a new permanent retail store featuring limited art editions,”Go-Kits”, inspired and created by the artists of Wynwood Walls. Go-Kits will encourage people to make, enjoy and take part in creative life and encompass activities ranging from dreaming, going to the beach, celebrating, listening to music and making art. The new Wynwood Walls book will be available for sale, and a book signing by the artists will take place at 8:30 p.m. Additionally, there will be tours of the Walls via the new Augmented Reality Application, an app that will allow visitors to see an “augmented reality of the murals” created in coordination with the artists.
