Downtown's Whole Foods Has a Mural-Covered Garage

New, 1 comment

Downtown Miami's brand new Whole Foods Market, the one underneath the Monarc at Met 3 construction site, has a mural-covered parking garage. It's like Wynwood in there, but with more parking, and situated vertically between a construction site and a fancy supermarket.

The New Times interviewed the organizer of the murals for Whole Foods, Yo Miami, "an organization that has its fingers and toes deep in the art scene", who says that they're painted by a catalogue of great Miami muralists, including Trek 6, Kazilla, Luis Berros, Nate Dee, Monz, Rei Ramirez, Jenny Perez, Jorge Rodriguez, Atomik, Yuhmi Collective, and Noah Levy. Most of the murals seem to be connected to themes of food, or at least nature in some way, with giant chickens, anthropomorphic tomatoes, fish, and somebody wearing a giant orange peel as a hat.
