Updated: Mar 2, 2019
Wynwood is a neighborhood in Miami, Florida best known for being a prominent entertainment district, dotted with artwork, restaurants, breweries, clothing stores, dance venues, among other retail options. Formerly an industrial district, the area is highlighted by colorful murals that cover the walls of many of the buildings. Wynwood has two major sub-districts, the Wynwood Art District in northern Wynwood, and the Wynwood Fashion District along West 5th Avenue.
The Wynwood Art District is a sub-district of Wynwood that contains galleries, outdoor murals and private art collections. The district is centered around Wynwood Walls, conceived of by the late urban developer Tony Goldman in 2009. His idea was to revitalize the neighborhood by turning warehouses into works of art (Wikipedia).
During the Miami Art Basel week, the Wynwood neighborhood is full of life.the restaurants are packed,the vibe in the streets is electrifying,fun and free.We came across an incredible fashion show and found great little shops. Beautiful inspiration for any art lover.
