A collaborative project featuring world class street and graffiti artists from the Netherlands: The London Police, Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman and Hass & Hahn – Favela/Philly painting and their international peers will work together to create a garden of murals in the lot on 250 NW 24th Street in Wynwood. The mural installation begins November 28 and ends with a celebration on December 6, 2013.

As an inaugural project, event and a Dutch initiative, Caleidoscoop is working directly with the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York is contributing with the specific purpose to produce a “satellite fair” that the Consulate can be exceedingly proud of and to demonstrate the ways in which cultural collaborations and contributions of the Dutch can be made during the highly-profiled December Art Fair week.

The lot of 250 NW 24th street is empty now, but will soon be the home of a new 11-unit live/work space and the first development to break ground in the popular community since 2006. The motivation behind 250 Wynwood is “to create a neighborhood so people can keep creating and growing” a fitting mantra for this inaugural event that showcases international cultural involvement and collaboration.

Providing artistic and curatorial support, Caleidoscoop is partnering with Kallenbach Gallery, Andenken and Unruly, three of the most respected galleries in the Netherlands. The promotion and organization of Caleidoscoop is made possible with the efforts of a number of entities. Largely the brainchild of Made Creative, a Dutch nonprofit and Catapult 13, a Miami based design firm, Caleidoscoop has the long term goal of being an annual event in Miami to showcase the extensive art and design talent of the Netherlands.
