Gloria Estefan hosts day of art and auction

On Saturday, June 28, leading Miami businesswoman/performer Gloria Estefan will kick off a daylong celebration at Miami Marine Stadium (3501 Rickenbacker Causeway). Gloria, a Trustee of the National Trust for Historic Preservation who was named the "Voice of Miami Marine Stadium," will be joined by representatives from the National Trust and Friends of Miami Marine Stadium to unveil several recent, high profile accomplishments in the campaign to restore the iconic stadium, including an announcement by Estefan herself.  

A series of events will take place throughout the day following a 10:00 am press conference, including:

The ART History Mural Project, for which nine world-renowned contemporary street artists will be at the stadium to create large-scale, site-specific murals. The project, curated by stencil artist and muralist Logan Hicks, features a roster of local and international street artists including Luis Berros, Doze Green, Elbow Toe, Evoca1, Ian Kuali’I, Joe Iurato, RISK, and Rone. Although closed to the general public, these incredible murals will be presented through extensive documentation, as well as an archival print release at arthistory2014.com. Proceeds from the sale of the prints will directly support the stadium’s restoration.

Thirty social media contest winners will explore the stadium with Gloria Estefan and architect Hilario Candela as the nine artists participating in the ART History Mural Project transform it with new murals. The winners were selected by the National Trust based on their enthusiasm for taking photos of all the things that make Miami special—including its historic icons like Miami Marine Stadium.

The event comes at an important time for the stadium. Per an agreement with the City of Miami, Friends of Miami Marine Stadium has until January 2015 to raise an estimated $30 million to restore the stadium, with $10 million of that either identified or committed.
