My parents discovered the Wynwood Art District in Miami from going to a Dutch Club event in the area. Basically, it's the Bushwick of Miami - eclectic vibe, local coffee shop (we started our day and Panther Coffee and it was great!), beautiful murals. It's amazing. It's apparently been there since 2009 but I had no idea. The artwork is truly beautiful and diverse and definitely worth a trip! Here are some of my favorite pieces. I tried to keep the number down but these are all just too fantastic not to share.
My favorite were, off course, these mermaids. There is a third one to the right but you'll just have to go see it in person to see her.
These are in a little garden gallery area:
Most of them were just on the street:
My wonderful amazing mom on the left, me posing with cake graffiti on the right.
I mean, this is just incredible:
I don't know who this dude is but he's on a wall as well.
It was great to walk around here and look at all of this talent. To think they turned around a neighborhood that was getting worse and worse just by featuring art is amazing.They apparently also do all kinds of events here and there are several trendy casual food places here as well. This is their website if you're interested in finding out more about this awesome neighborhood. You can also take an art walk tour!
