Gloria Estefan kicks off a daylong celebration at Miami Marine Stadium on June 28th. Estefan, a Trustee of the National Trust for Historic Preservation who was named the “Voice of Miami Marine Stadium” in May 2013, is 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.
The ART History Mural 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.
These incredible murals will be presented through extensive documentation, as well as an archival print release at www.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 June 28 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.
Saturday, June 28, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
The event will take place in front of Miami Marine Stadium, located at 3501 Rickenbacker Causeway.
