Art with that football? Dolphins' stadium vibrant with color

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — When the Miami Dolphins play their home opener against the Cleveland Browns, it will be in a refurbished stadium that features 29,000 square feet of new, original wall art by artists from all over the world.

The large, eye-catching pieces of color and design found throughout Hard Rock Stadium were curated by Jessica Goldman Srebnick, the CEO of Goldman Global Arts.

She says it's all the result of a visit last year by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross to Miami's Wynwood neighborhood, which is known for its vibrant street art.
