A few years ago, budget cuts forced the elimination of art education in Wynwood schools. That reality was hard to comprehend considering street art and contemporary art galleries were mushrooming and flourishing throughout the rest of this Miami neighborhood. Tougher still was its negative impact upon area students.

Enter The RAW Project, Re-imagining the Arts in Wynwood. With approval of school officials, the RAW Project raised donations and curated artists from around the world to add color to the walls of Jose de Diego Middle School, nurture creativity in the students, and help resurrect and enliven their arts program.

Section 1 Project was quite prolific this month. Three large-scale murals went up at their Creative Labs in the Clipper Mill Industrial Park. The first mural, a collaboration between Pablo Machioli and Argentinian artist Federico Segatori, headlined Section 1’s cultural exchange program Roots/Raices – an event that explored the cultural identities that shape our urban communities. Alongside the building facing the Light Rail tracks, Nether created the second mural which he named The Guardians. And, toward the end of August, Section 1 Executive Director Richard Best started work on the third mural. It will feature a new 3D painting technique.
