Miami has an unbeatable arts scene and the The Wynwood Walls are a perfect display of it. The area was not so long ago a run down warehouse district, but some forward-thinking locals decided in 1996 that it would be a great place to feature the street art of local and international artists.
Today the area is full of art galleries, nightclubs, restaurants and shops and is also the center of the yearly Art Basel event, which brings in artists, photographers and art enthusiasts from all over the globe. The Wynwood district also hosts monthly art walks.
The artists featured on the walls are constantly changing, but the more notable pieces are by The Date Farmers, Kenny Scharf, Invader and Shepherd Fairey. Even more artists are featured on the Wynwood Doors series, as well as the Outside the Walls series.
