Miami, FL – October 25, 2016 – For the second consecutive year, Miami Parking Authority and Beefree Media are coming together for the award-winning Wynwood’s Park-Your-Art contest. Eight artists will be chosen to publicly paint a Pay-and-Display machine and seemingly unite the Wynwood community through this event.

Much like the 2015 contest, we are seeking emerging and established artists to submit an original artwork proposal that falls under the theme, “Wynwood United.” The theme will embody community members and businesses coming together.

To further our commitment to our community, we will also include new “little artists” and install artwork submitted by Miami-Dade elementary school students in restaurants, retail stores, art galleries, etc. to promote this initiative and bring hundreds of families to Wynwood.

“One of the many social benefits of art is the way it can unite and transform individuals and communities. At Miami Parking Authority, we are proud to be part of a project that builds community and enhances the lives of the people we serve,” said Alejandra Argudin, Chief Operation Officer.

Artwork will be judged upon the following criteria: originality of content, technique and creative interpretation of theme. Winners will be designated one Pay-and-Display machine that they will paint live on Saturday, November 19th, 2016. In addition, the machines will be covered with an anti-graffiti lamination so the design will stay fresh and unharmed.

“Not all communities rally around an event, but most will rally around a cause,” said Stuart Lujan, Managing Partner at Beefree. “This amazing project allows for the Wynwood community to contribute and grow stronger together.”

The artwork will be visible through the 2016 Miami Art Basel season and will remain displayed until the following Wynwood’s Park-Your-Art contest in 2017.

Miami Parking Authority and Beefree Media encourage people from throughout the U.S. to participate, get creative and engage the community. Submissions close on Friday, November 4th, 2016.
