The Wynwood Walls of Miami 2016: 450 Works

Wynwood Walls 2016 426Wynwood Walls 2016 421We’ve traveled the world over, people, and we are proud to say that in our humble estimation the single greatest installment of street art in the entire world is right here in the good ol’ U.S.A. Oh, how we wish we could tell you it’s in the great city of Detroit, Michigan, but, alas, it is not. “Wynwood” is the place; a Wynwood Walls 2016 382Wynwood Walls 2016 376 4wildly progressive neighborhood just north of downtown Miami, Florida, where muralists of the world have converged over the last half-decade to create the most captivating and deservedly famous open-air street and graffiti art gallery anywhere, ever, period. Bounded roughly by US Wynwood Walls 2016 312Wynwood Walls 2016 272Interstate 195 on the north, US Interstate 95 on the west, NW 20th Street on the south, and NE 2nd Avenue on the east, an exhaustive exploration of all the district’s outdoor art requires a full day investment at the very least, as in 12+ hours. We recommend making a weekend of it. While the phrase Wynwood Walls 2016 351Wynwood Walls 2016 219 0“Wynwood Walls” technically refers only to the privately owned, fenced-in outdoor gallery located at 2520 NW 2nd Avenue, the adoring public now generically applies it to nearly all of the district’s outdoor paintings, even those located on the near sides of bordering neighborhoods.
