MIAMI >> Some of the most popular street artists in Miami’s trendy Wynwood district will get a boost from today’s Super Bowl. Five artists are showcasing their work at the stadium, around the city and on the actual game day ticket.

The NFL partnered with the curators of the renowned Wynwood Walls and commissioned five artists to create large-scale murals, sculptures and building wraps into the Super Bowl LIV experience. The Walls, a year-round spot in the heart of Wynwood, features large murals by artists. It has become a popular tourist spot and colorful selfie backdrop.

Artist Tristan Eaton designed the face of the Super Bowl ticket, along with two renditions of the program which includes a hologram version for ticket holders.

Joe Iurato’s pieces are featured throughout Miami with a scavenger hunt of 10 of the biggest moments in NFL history. Fans can use the ONEPASS app to hunt for moments like the 1920 first owners meeting, the 1972 Dolphins Perfect Season and the 2008 Helmet Catch.

Dasic Fernandez’s mural of the Vince Lombardi Trophy is featured on 27 stories of the Citigroup Center building in downtown Miami. Kelly Graval, who is known as the artist RISK, displays his 40-foot neon mural during the Super Bowl LIVE festival at Bayfront Park.

And Kelsey Montague’s interactive mural on the 32 NFL clubs is part of the NFL experience at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
