MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Wynwood neighborhood in Miami is famously known for its beautiful murals, but there’s one mural that’s really catching people’s attention.
It’s a mural of the entire Miami Heat team, including president Pat Riley, owner Micky Arison, and Heat legends Alonzo Mourning and Dwyane Wade, all wearing masks because of COVID-19.READ MORE: Blue Alert Issued Out Of North Florida County for Patrick McDowell, Accused Of Murdering Deputy During Traffic Stop
The Mask Up Miami Heat mural was painted by artist Kyle Holbrook and unveiled on January 24 at the corner of NW 36th Street and 5th Avenue.
He says it’s his way to remind people we’re all in this together.
“What better way than with the Miami Heat and with the season starting and how great they just played and capitalize off of that popularity to remind residents and visitors that we are all a team, not just paint one player, but paint the whole team because as a whole team of Americans and Miamians we have to come to together to win and beat this virus,” said Holbrook.READ MORE: Facing South Florida: 1-On-1 With Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava
