Carlos Cruz-Diez's Crosswalk Intersection in Wynwood Arts District

February 2013.

Residents and visitors of Wynwood can now enjoy the neighborhood’s first permanent artistic crosswalk: a work aimed to transform the intersection of Northwest Second Avenue and 25th Street. The effort is part of the Miami Biennale’s Wynwood Ways, an initiative to make the neighborhood a more pedestrian-friendly cultural destination.

The crosswalk, dedicated to Wynwood visionary Tony Goldman, consists of a kinetic design by Carlos Cruz-Diez, which changes as the pedestrian is crossing. Cruz Diez’s work can be seen on the walkways of the Marlins Stadium and outside the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The abstract geometric design is donated by Cruz-Diez and is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Fund at The Miami Foundation.

The Miami Biennale’s Wynwood Ways, in collaboration with Knight Foundation, The Miami Foundation, Wynwood Arts District Association, City of Miami and the Cruz-Diez Foundation, is a first step in making Wynwood a great pedestrian neighborhood. Miami Biennale’s goal is to actively seek support from public and private institutions to continue enhancing the Wynwood Community.
