Miami Marine Stadium, a 1960s iconic Landmark designed by Miami Architect Hilario Candela, naturally complements the unique turquoise watercourse of Virginia Key. It hosted boat races, concerts, rallies, and a U.S. President, but now stands closed since Hurricane Andrew’s wake; threatened by demolition.
Professional Miami Artist, Hans Feyerabend, submits a clear vision and innovative designs to trigger momentum to save the structure in conjunction with The Friends of the Marine Stadium, an organization dedicated to its protection and refurbishment.
An Art Light Installation involving state-of-the-art technology will highlight the structure and imaginative changing projections (adaptable to local events) will transform it. This will immediately attract public awareness via land, air, and sea; engaging five cities across Greater Miami and visitors from across the globe.
Bathed in Art and Light, the Miami Marine Stadium will become a 21st Century Modern Masterpiece; as diverse as the community itself.

The amazing photographs in this gallery have been provided to us by Seth Bramson, who received them from the estate of a worker who helped construct the Miami Marine Stadium. We would also like to thank Adam Rogers, who helped transfer these photographs to our website.

Since its closure in 1992, the Marine Stadium has become a haven for graffiti. Graffiti artists go into the Stadium and do their work-and photographers follow them to document it. These images are now "going viral" and are all over the web.
In this gallery, we showcase some of the work of photographers who have documented the graffiti, along with links to their websites, which may contain more work.
The Graffiti is now serving to introduce the Marine Stadium to a whole new generation that may never have attended an event there.
