The Wrap Up—Trey Speegle at Art Wynwood A look back at Twyla and Trey in Miami
We just wrapped up our time at the Art Wynwood art fair in Miami with Trey Speegle. Over the course of five days, Trey painted an epic mural in our booth titled What Kind of World Do You Want? (And What Will You Do To Get It?). Throughout the fair, visitors came through our booth to check out the artist in action and many lucky people got the chance to help Trey paint the piece. If you couldn’t be there, we documented it all and we still have Trey’s exclusive limited edition prints for sale. Read on and hear from the Twyla team who was part of it all. (Find out more about the idea behind the piece here).
“Trey's artwork invited the viewer to be an active participant in creating the artwork and also to be an active participant in creating a better world for all of us.” -William Carson, Art Coordinator, Twyla
“The mural’s poignant message sparked many interesting conversations bringing complete strangers together.” -Heidi Lee-Komaromi, Director, Artist Development, Twyla
“Asking people the question 'What kind of world do you want?' led to discussions of religion, immigration, race, geography, politics, philosophy, and everything in between.” -William Carson, Art Coordinator, Twyla
“It was inspiring to see how many individuals were able to contribute cooperatively to a common task and the self discovery that took place along the way for us all!” -Cornelia Clay, Artist Liaison, Twyla
“People thanked us for being here and for creating a participatory experience for them and their families.” -Ariel Saldivar, VP of Artist Relations, Twyla
