The streets of Wynwood were packed on Tuesday evening with artists and visitors at the launch of Miami Art Week.

Wynwood Properties held a VIP opening event for Walls of Change, the debut of new murals at the Wynwood Walls. Artists Case, Crash, Cryptik, el Seed, Ernest Zacharevic, Fafi, Hueman, INTI, The London Police, Pichi & Avo, Magnus Sodamin and Alexis Diaz attended the commissioning of 14 new large-scale installations and murals.

Jessica Goldman Srebnick, CEO of Wynwood Properties, hosted the event, which opened to the public at 11 p.m. It was also a launch party for artist Peter Tunney’s exhibit “Wynwood Exposed” and artist Magnus Sodamin’s “Calm Before the Storm” exhibit and installation.

The Walls of Change event is part of Goldman Srebnick’s “Wynwood 2.0,” a slew of projects that includes breaking ground on an eight-story, 430-car garage with retail and office space. Also on the horizon: a mixed-use office, retail, residential and hotel project on Northwest 2nd Avenue between 27th and 28th Streets.

The Wynwood Walls, at 2520 Northwest Second Avenue, debuted in 2009, and has since spilled over into the Wynwood Doors. Goldman acquired the doors in August for $12 million, but erected the doors with the permission of the landowner in 2010.

Goldman’s father, Tony Goldman, has been credited with reviving Wynwood. Graffiti and more street art was being installed on a number of buildings this week, including Wood Tavern, which sold to a New York-based partnership in August for $12 million, and the building at 2545 Northwest Third Avenue, which is leased and managed by Metro 1.
