The Jose De Diego Middle School sits just outside of the Wynwood arts district in Miami. Although Wynwood itself is gentrifying quickly, the areas around it, the areas that feed the school, like Overtown, are still fairly impoverished, tuff, and derelict. The JDD has little to no money for arts teachers, and as a result the school has no art programs. As a reaction to this, the school is now graced with over 80 murals created by Street Artists and Graffiti Artists from around the world. This massive on-going mural project is organized in large part by Robert De Los Rios as part of his RAW (Reimagining the Arts in Wynwood) effort. De Los Rios sat down with our man Hyland Mather and ate some Cuban food at the old school local’s diner, Enriqueta’s, where Rios did the ordering.
