Mana Urban Arts Project at the iconic RC Cola Plant

Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood has become synonymous with graffiti, urban art, murals and street art, and it offers a unique way for the public to experience this art form. This year, Mana Wynwood, Mana Contemporary and the Bushwick Collective have teamed up to launch the Mana Urban Arts Project at the iconic RC Cola Plant in Miami. To celebrate this historic occasion, they joined forces with Basel House to host this four-day block party during Art Basel Week. And best of all - it's free!

The Basel House & Bushwick Collective Block Party will be the epicenter of the graffiti world this December.The Block Party will showcase some of the world’s top street artists including Ghost (NY), GIZ (NY), Case Maclaim (Germany), Shok1 (England), Atomik (Florida), Lola Blu (Florida), Crash One TATS CRU (NY), Don Rimx (Florida), Sipros (Brazil), James Cochran (Australia), Aiko (US/Japan), SPOK (Spain), Hoxxoh (Florida) and Trek6 (Florida), to name a few. These artists will transform the RC Cola Plant with an entire body of new murals and paintings. 

Artists will be painting live throughout the four-day event. In addition, The Heineken® Mobile Art Experience will make a stop with their branded truck, which will feature a rotating canvas on the outside and a fully stocked art store and gallery on the inside. In addition, a free concert series featuring Fat Joe and other hip hop legends will add to the colorful backdrop. DJ’s, arts and
craft vendors will also be present. 

It wouldn’t be Wynwood without the Food Trucks, so Basel House has secured a swarm
of South Florida favorites; from lobster to hot dogs, you name it, they’ll be serving it up!
Curating the collaboration is Joe Ficalora of the Bushwick Collective from Brooklyn. The Bushwick Collective was born on the streets of Brooklyn as a way for Joe to cope with personal tragedy. The Collective transformed a large section of the Bushwick neighborhood into a colorful and vibrant work of urban art. Many of those artists will be making the trip to Miami to help launch the Wynwood location of the Mana Urban Arts Project. 

“We are proud to showcase some of the best artists from around the world, and we hope to inspire the masses,” explains Joe. The team at SWARM is known for hosting incredible events throughout South Florida, and Basel House will be no different.

“We are honored to be working with the Bushwick Collective and Mana,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO and Basel House Director. “The only way to launch this unique project is with a complete and utter blowout, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
