Special Projects and Partnerships

●      This year’s fair highlights include artist Ron English being honored with the fifth Art Wynwood Tony Goldman Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award, which will be presented by Jessica Goldman Srebnick, CEO, Goldman Properties, The Goldman Family, Nick Korniloff, Director, Art Wynwood, and Asli Unal, Associate Director, Art Wynwood, during a private four-course dinner at the elegant Boulud Sud on Friday, February 15 at 7:30pm. Presented in partnership with the Wynwood Walls, the Award acknowledges individuals in art whose careers have changed the industry. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his trademark fusion of high and low imagery, mixing superheroes and comic strips with art history iconography in his prolific and ubiquitous paintings, billboards, and sculptures. English has imagined a vast, and still growing, roster of characters, including MC Supersized, his obese fast-food mascot that was featured in the 2004 documentary Supersize Me, and Abraham Obama, a mash-up of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents. He is best known for combining expert draftsmanship with a cynical, humorous critique of American culture. Limited seats available. To purchase tickets, visit artwynwood2019.eventbrite.com
