Thanks to a partnership between Miami Worldcenter and All4Art, the world’s largest public art fair, you’ll be able to experience exclusive, larger-than-life art murals from renowned artists along the development’s two-block promenade through the end of 2021.
All4Art launched in Miami last week, showcasing more than 100 pieces of art around the city on billboards and on murals along Miami Worldcenter’s pedestrian promenade – from NE 8th Street to NE 10th Street between NE 1st and 2nd Avenues. The art exhibit will remain on display, gracing the walls of the development’s upcoming open-air, high-street retail component, which is set to debut in 2021.
“We are building a 27-acre-city-within-a-city at Miami Worldcenter. Public art is a key element bringing every facet of our development together to create a memorable experience for our residents and visitors. Art4All is a perfect partner because we share a passion for bringing the beauty of art to everyone,” said Nitin Motwani, managing partner of Miami Worldcenter Associates. “We’ve dedicated an extraordinary amount of outdoor space for art installations and beautiful landscaping to create an inspiring environment for people to enjoy.”
Some of the featured artists in the Art4All exhibit include:
New York City-based Israeli artist, Yigal Ozeri is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of distinctive, young women in rich, prodigious landscapes. With tinges of Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics, Ozeri brings an ethereal and uninhibited sensibility to his paintings. Ozeri has showcased extensively around the world including solo exhibits in Spain, China, The Netherlands, France, Germany, and Mexico. He is also in the permanent collections of renowned, international museums, such as: The Whitney Museum of American Art, The McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, and The Jewish Museum in New York.

Guy Stanley Philoche
Haitian-born modern artist, Guy Stanley Philoche is the middle child of three boys and comes from a family of sports enthusiasts, whose passion he did not share. Instead, Philoche turned to his calling: art. Over the past 15 years, he has attracted international attention with his strong and sophisticated palette. His layering technique has created a body of paintings so richly textured that one can hardly hold back from reaching out and touching the canvas. In fact, it’s Philoche’s intent for viewers to follow their desire to reach out and feel the different textures of his varnished canvases. Visit Guy Philoche’s website to learn more.
Gregoire Vogelsang, founder of Cube Art Fair, created Art4All after Art Basel 2020 in Miami and other major art fairs were closed this year. After initially launching in Brussels in early 2020, Vogelsang and his team brought this creative exhibit to Miami for people to experience in a publically safe way.
Sean Wolfington, co-founder of Art4All reiterated this, “The best art is usually only seen by the few who have access to museums and exclusive art galleries where fine art is displayed. We’re trying to change this, by exposing millions of people to art they may never see otherwise, and we hope it inspires them to stay creative by finding solutions to the problems the pandemic has created in their lives.”
Art4All is an international non-profit that shares art with the public for free, by connecting artists, collectors and consumers through public art exhibits and the online exposure they generate.
