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.

Back in 2009, folks living in the Welling Court neighborhood of Queens asked Ad Hoc Art Gallery to help them clean up and enhance their community, and the Welling Court Mural Project was born. Every year since then, Ad Hoc Art invites artists from far and wide to help turn the neighborhood into an open-air art gallery. Their annual block party in June is a celebrated event.
