Six renowned street artists including Chor Boogie, Estria, Prime, Trek6, CP1 and Don Rimx painted the town - Wynwood specifically - as part of the Heineken Mural Project. Each artist was given the mission to interpret Heineken's "Open Your World" message and the murals can be viewed with ease by renting a Deco Bike, the bike sharing program that launched on Miami Beach and Surfside, which will have a station located outside of Wood Tavern (2531 NW 2nd Ave.), home of the Heineken Beer Garden during the Art Basel festivities.

Zip around the streets of Wynwood on the Deco Bike and, at each mural use the QR codes located on the Heineken Mural Project map and on each work of art to get info on the mural, the artist and special events. Deco Bike will also have a station by Art Miami in MIdtown, making it the next destination after the Heineken Mural circuit.

Stayed connected to Twitter to find out when and where the Heineken Mural Project will be hosting unexpected pop-up parties by following #heinekenmurals. Also view work by Heineken artists at The Workshop Collective (171 NW 23 St.) from Dec. 6-9 from 2-7 p.m. daily.
