Wynwood Walls#4 in Best Things To Do in Miami
- 4.5Food Scene
This open-air street art installation – one of the largest in the world – is one of the reasons a formerly run-down neighborhood found new life as the art hub of Miami.
Founded in 2009 as a way to jump-start revitalization in the neighborhood lying between downtown and the Design District, the Wynwood Walls acts as an outdoor art museum covering more than 80,000 square feet of abandoned warehouse walls. The walls garnered such a positive response from the community that a year later the lot adjacent became known as the Wynwood Doors, where metal roll-down gates transformed into even more canvas space. The walls and doors are saturated with bright, eclectic street art and whimsical graffiti. Since its start, more than 50 artists from 16 countries have brought the walls to life.
