The Wynwood Brewing Company recently announced plans to start a rotating monthly Artistâ€™s Showcase at its Tap Room. The WBCo. will feature solo-exhibitions of renowned local artists. The first show will be dedicated to the art of Ernesto Kunde and will open during the June Wynwood Art Walk.
Since itâ€™s opening in September 2013, the Wynwood Brewing Company has been known for its support of the local art scene. Its Tap Room and brewery are a mini gallery of Miamiâ€™s best known street artists like TrekSix, CP1, Krave Art, Eva Ruiz, Kazilla, Ruben Ubiera, and Ernesto Kunde. The mural by Kunde, located above the Tap Room bar, is part of the artistâ€™s â€œMiami Seriesâ€ and shows the street sign of I-95 going towards Miami Beach. Continuing with the tradition already started with this mural, Ernesto will be showcasing paintings from the â€œMiami Seriesâ€ on the WBCoâ€™s Tap Room walls.
â€œMy Miami series is inspired by the vibrant and unique Deco architecture and by the daily rhythms of the city. When I first moved to Miami 8 years ago, I saw changes coming rapidly. Many of the old buildings were being torn down or remodeled. My goal in this series has been to preserve a bit of history while at the same time offering tribute to this exciting city in which we live.â€ – Kunde explained.
The father and son team – Luis and â€œPopsâ€ Brignoni – couldnâ€™t be happier about starting this art series in the Tap Room.
â€œWe envision a monthly show with renowned local artists in order to showcase and promote their work. Our vision for the Tap Room and the Brewery has always been to be an extension of the artistic atmosphere of the Wynwood Arts District. From our tap handles to our walls we are inspired everyday to create our beers like works of art.â€
As part of the exhibition, the artists will be asked to create a WBCo â€œtap handleâ€ that will be a signature art piece to be kept in the tap room. The idea is to create a collection of â€œHandmade in Miamiâ€ tap handles that could be later exhibited as a group.
On Saturday, June 14th the WBCo. will also tap a special cask in honor of the opening. An oak-aged Father Francisco with key lime craft will be served for the first time.
Ernesto Kundeâ€™s â€œMiami Seriesâ€ will be on exhibit at the Wynwood Brewing Co. Tap Room from Saturday, June 14 through Sunday, July 6, 2014. The Wynwood Brewing is located at 565 NW 24th Street, Miami, FL. Hours of Operation are Tues -Thur 2 – 11 pm, Fri. 2 pm – midnight, Sat. 12 pm – midnight, Sun. 12 pm – 10 pm.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
