For years, Friends of the Miami Marine Stadium have lobbied to restore the Key Biscayne landmark to its former glory. Last weekend, those efforts got a major boost, as Gloria and Emilio Estefan announced they'd give $500,000 to the cause.
And they're not the only ones promoting the stadium's restoration. Street artists and local Instagrammers joined forces with the Estefans to show the world its potential as a venue, an architectural gem, and a canvas for spray-painted masterpieces. New Times videographer Adam Hendel and writer Hannah Sentenac were there to capture it all.
