Crosswalks Painted In Brightly-Colored Patterns Make Crossing The Road Fun
By Dorothy Tan, 19 Aug 2013
Earlier this year, artist Carlos Cruz-Diez created a series of eye-catching urban artworks in Wynwood, Miami for the Miami Biennale.
Titled ‘Wynwood Ways’, the series consists of pedestrian crossings that have been painted with brightly-colored patterns, and seek to make the neighborhood a more “pedestrian-friendly cultural destination”.
There are 15 artist-designed crosswalks in all, and the first one is dedicated to visionary Tony Goldman—“Since the Wynwood Ways initiative aims to the beautification, education, as well as culturization of the streets in Wynwood, as it was envisioned by Tony Goldman many times during his lifetime, it makes sense to dedicate the first crosswalk to visionary Tony Goldman.”
The striking color-blocked, geometric pattern will be sure to make you pay attention when crossing the road—view more images of it below.
