This year’s edition of Primary Flight, Miami’s original annual mural festival, is shaping up to be pretty mad. Primary Flight, now in its 4th year, is an annual mural festival that takes every year in Miami during Basel Miami. Past highlights include murals from Depoe, El Mac and Retna, Pose, Shepard Fairey, Typoe, Boxi and Ron English. Like last year, most of the painting will be going on at the RC Cola Plant in Wynwood, with other artists painting between 20th and 36th Streets, from NE Second to Biscayne Boulevard (Wynwood and the Design District I believe).
Primary Flight has put together an impressive group of artists. Here are just a few from their massive list that I’m most excited about: Anthony Lister, Augor, Burning Candy, Haze, Nunca, Remed, Retna, Saelee Oh, Skewville and Stormie Mills. Everyone will be painting from November 29th through December 5th.
Primary Flight 2010 will also mark the start of the Wynwood Mural Museum, which is something that Primary Flight, the Wynwood Arts District Association, and the City of Miami have put together. The museum is a listing of over 30 murals that have gone up since the start of Primary Flight. As I understand it, the government of Miami weren’t originally fans of the festival, so it’s pretty cool to see them change their minds and get behind it.
Keep an eye on Vandalog, as I’m sure we’ll be posting some photos from Primary Flight, and if you’re in Miami this December, this is definitely something to check out. It’s probably where I’ll be spending most of my time while I’m in town.
