Annual street art conference Living Walls announced two new projects that expand scope and vision of the organizers. Next month, they'll be partnering with Primary Flight in Miami to bring JAZ, EVER, and KNOW HOPE to create murals during the international art circus also known as Art Basel.

LW has worked with JAZ and EVER before, but this partnership with Primary Flight seems to be a promising connection. Primary Flight is "Miami's original open air museum and street level mural installation that takes place annually throughout the Wynwood Arts District and the Miami Design District." They're involved with a number of projects during Art Basel this year.

The organization also announced plans and ambitions to start programming in Atlanta year round. That'll begin in December, when they bring Israel-based artist Know Hope for a number of events. More on that from the press release after the jump.

Upon returning from Miami, “Living Walls Concepts” launches as an extension of the annual conference: this year-round, multidisciplinary vehicle will instigate public and community artistic interventions for the city of Atlanta.

The official launch of Living Walls Concepts happens this December, with a project sponsored by the Consulate of Israel. The consulate is hosting the journey and work of Know Hope, a street artist based out of Tel-Aviv, Israel. An exciting itinerary has already been arranged for Know Hope: a new mural for the city of Atlanta, a 3-day workshop with One Love Generation, and a public conversation with the artist at the Goat Farm.

Just as it appears, Living Walls is very excited to start these new projects, new murals, and new partnerships with organizations that will help inspire and re-define the ways in which to engage cities via public art.
