Wynwoodmap selected international artists -- D*Face (UK), Anthony Lister (Australia), Pixelpancho (Italy), and Pastel FD (Argentina), as well as local artists such as AholSniffsGlue, Hox, Santiago Rubino, Typoe, and Magnus Sodamin -- to make the walls of JDD their canvas. The unveiling of completed and in-progress works kicks off Tuesday, December 2 at the school, located at 3100 NW 5th Ave.

Though JDD is mere blocks from the center of Wynwood, where artists have been out tagging in troves lately, stepping into this still-transforming campus is a refreshing way to take in murals. You can pause, look up, and appreciate the work without threat of Panther Coffee patrons and cars running you over, for one thing.
