Did you know that there is more to Miami than just South Beach? Miami is known for its beautiful beaches, people and music but that’s not all… Miami is also known for its dope art.
Wynwood is apart of the Miami Design District that has more than 70 art galleries which are great for sightseeing during the Miami Beach Art Basel.
The influx of warehouses turned galleries coupled with various bars and lounges makes for an art enthusiast’s paradise. It’s a growing art scene that’s about a 15 minute drive from Miami Airport. Every second Saturday of the month the artistic city, conducts an art walk known as the Wynwood Art Walk-Second Saturday’s. The walk begins at 6:00pm and continues throughout the night. This iconic monthly art event features openings at numerous art galleries, restaurants and retail businesses.
For most, the focal point of the Art District is the outdoor graffiti park, Wynwood Walls. Where there is over 40 murals that were created by world renown artists. During your visit, one must also check out the Institute of Contemporary Art, for some of the most cutting edge modern day art exhibits. Next time you think Miami… think more than popular beaches, people and music, think art.
