Local Artists Make Their Mark On Wynwood

Staff report

Local Delray artist Glayson LeRoy is making a splash with his art in Miami’s Wynwood arts district.

Along with help from other South Florida artists, he and his business partner John Griffin of Galera Collective helped start a project called Trackside— a new installation of art on an alley facing the train tracks.

The installation was a part of Miami’s Art Basal, which took place last month. Ron Bloomberg of Bloomberg Equities LLC, helped provide the canvas for the large murals on the back of his warehouses.

The murals are about 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide.

“This was really overwhelming in a good way,” LeRoy said. “We have the biggest murals in Wynwood.”

The ultimate goal is to create WYMAC, Wynwood Mural Artist Cooperative, for local artists to be a part of to help showcase their work.
