Memorial Garden & Some Yoga Among The Wynwood Walls

WYNWOOD (CBSMiami) – Art is a realm that goes way beyond just a paint brush and canvas—and "Art Basel" which has come to represent all the art fairs, events, parties, museum-openings of the week, also made way to honor an urban visionary and even the art of yoga.

At Wynwood Walls, where famous artists from around the world paint their work on the, well, walls, friends and family of the late Tony Goldman gathered Friday at a new garden created in his name called, "Tony's Oasis."


Goldman was instrumental in revitalizing the Wynwood area and, coincidentally, December 6th would have been Goldman's 70th birthday.

In addition to the art on the walls, even crotched rocks, yoga-lovers unrolled their mats for a few up dogs and down dogs—perhaps to catch a breath from the back to back events and art perusing.

Yogart, where yoga meets art, started a few years back to, as CBS4's Lisa Petrillo says, "bring some calm to the art storm."
