STREET ART | Miami, an open air art gallery.

Miami arrived on the art scene in 2002 when Art Basel, the world’s premier contemporary art fair decided to expand its venue. Miami was then selected as a location that would attract North and Latin American participants. By then, contemporary art found a home, and soon after, so did street art: Wynwood Art District

Once a neighborhood of empty warehouses, Wynwood is now known for its colorful murals. Every weekend, thousands of people flock to the area to enjoy the gallery exhibits, street musicians, and Miami’s famous food trucks.
