Miami’s Wynwood Arts District is full of street art. The area is located on NW Second Ave between 23rd and 29th Streets. It is divided into four sections: Wynwood Walls, Wynwood Doors, Wynwood Gardens and Outside the Walls. More than 80,000 square feet of abandoned warehouse walls have become the canvas of street artists and turned an old warehouse district into ‘the biggest outdoor museum in the world’.
Tony Goldman begun the revitalization of Wynwood in 2009; Goldman Properties has also revitalized SoHo and South Beach. Wynwood has become an edgy neighborhood with over 70 art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and bars. The entire area is covered in street art. Street artist from all over the world are invited yearly to transform the area for Art Basel during the first week of December.
Wynwood is ranked a must do in Miami. The walls are open year-round and admission is free. The area is easy to locate and navigate on your own or you can purchase a guided tour to hear the story behind the murals. Wynwood Arts District comes alive the second Saturday of every month when galleries remain open late, food trucks emerge and live music fills the neighborhood.
