Miami, Florida has an unbeatable arts scene and 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.
What to See at the Wynwood Walls
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.
