The ART History Mural Project and an exclusive Instagram contest will take place at the Miami Marine Stadium on Saturday, June 28.
It hasn't been long since we featured a young Miami preservationist, Ivan Robles, who's working to bring attention to saving the Miami Marine Stadium, but we're back with more exciting stadium news.
Next Saturday, June 28, the National Trust is partnering with Friends of Miami Marine Stadium (FMMS) to launch a Day of Art and Action, a daylong celebration of the historic stadium. Three big things are happening that day:
- Gloria Estefan -- a trustee of the National Trust -- will join other representatives from the National Trust to unveil several accomplishments in the campaign to restore the stadium.
- The highly anticipated ART History Mural Project will bring nine internationally known artists to the stadium to create large-scale murals.
