The RC Cola Plant and surrounding Wynwood neighborhood will become the “epicenter of the graffiti world” during Basel House Mural Festival.
Over the course of four days, there will be 40-plus mural projects and 60-plus top street artists from across the globe painting large murals across six city blocks in Wynwood Art District, including a digital arts and VR playground that will bring art to life.
The free block party will offer live painting, unique art installations, live music, late-night deejays, artists, a vendor market, and food trucks. In addition, you can watch the creation process of the first mural in Wynwood to be painted by a robot designed by engineers from the University of Florida, and/or take part in Street Skool, where you can join panel discussions, workshops and networking sessions with industry
Basel House is designed to be inclusive of all artists and people. It will unite top Miami street artists with those from across the globe and present them before an international audience of 80,000 people. Basel House will feature a collection of art and craft vendors alongside purveyors of culture and lifestyle brands.
In addition to a selection of Miami’s best food trucks, Basel House will offer a zone of “must” Instagram dessert vendors that are either visually artistic or gargantuan; anything from outrageous ice cream toppings, naughty cupcakes, giant milkshakes, hipster donuts and mouthwatering fillings. And because hip art and eclectic music go together, Basel House will reveal a schedule of live musical performances offering a nightly musical lineup of bands and deejays.
Festival hours are Thursday, Dec. 7, 5 p.m.-2 a.m.; Friday, Dec. 8, noon-3 a.m.; Saturday, Dec. 9, noon-3 a.m., and Sunday, Dec 10, noon-9 p.m.
The activities are centered around the RC Cola Plant and Wynwood Art District, along NW 23rd and 24th streets and Fifth and Sixth avenues.
