Leave it to the city where there is so much to do, so much entertainment, and so many nightlife options to discover a brand new spot – Miami’s Wynwood Art District. It didn’t start out as much; the area was a run-down warehouse and manufacturing district of Greater Miami. Today, it is one of the most prominent creative communities in the country according to the Wynwood Arts District Association, which is charged with the well-being and improvement of the area. The eclectic area is home to over 70 art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, bars, and shops as well as one of the largest outdoor art exhibits known as Wynwood Walls.
Events at Wynwood Art District
The art district has quickly built a name for itself thanks to its participation in Art Basel fair. Most recently, it has introduced Second Saturday Art Walk, which has been a major showcase for the community. Hundreds, if not thousands, of Miami locals attend the Art Walk every other Saturday as a great change of pace to Miami’s typical bar and club scene. Popular food trucks attend every Art Walk serving a variety of delicious food on the go. Around the corner, a local market sells local products such as music, clothes, art, and other unique selections. All of the galleries are open to the public and are on full display of its collections, many times with the artists on hand. It’s quickly become a must-attend event.
Wynwood is truly a unique community. Around every corner you are confronted with an eclectic mix of its humble past and its transformation into a bustling art hub. Buildings proudly display elaborate art murals as a hipster would a tattoo. You get a real sense of community when stepping into a local establishment. There is truly nothing else like it in Miami, maybe not in Florida for that matter. It is something you must experience for yourself. Whether you are an art enthusiastic or not, Wynwood’s culture is unique, captivating, and intoxicating.
