Art Museum Museum
Wynwood Walls was established in 2009 by the legendary placemaker and visionary Tony Goldman as an outdoor museum of international street art. Since the first year's program – featuring Kenny Scharf, Futura, Os Gemeos, Swoon, Shepard Fairey, and other renowned innovators in street art, Wynwood Walls has become a phenomenon, spurring the creation of murals throughout the Wynwood district. It is now one of the best venues in the world to see the work of leading street artists.

In 2010, the adjacent Wynwood Doors, with 176 feet of roll-up storefront gates was added. Each subsequent year, a selection of international artists – that range from old school graffiti artists to young artists responsible for the newest work being created today – have created artwork for the Wynwood Walls. In 2012, Wynwood Walls celebrated Art Basel with a series of events dedicated to the vision of Tony Goldman who passed that September. Since that time, the project has been curated by Tony's daughter, Goldman Properties CEO Jessica Goldman Srebnick.

The world-class murals and the spirit of the project attracts thousands of people to Wynwood Walls each year and it has become a popular site for musical concerts, poetry readings, film and video screenings and special events. Miami’s now world renowned open air “museum of the streets” continues to attract visitors from around the world and currently encompasses more than 40 dazzling, cutting-edge murals created by respected street artists from Asia, Europe, Latin America and the United States.

Wynwood Walls is located on NW Second Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets and is free and open to the public. For hours and more information please visit www.thewynwoodwalls.com.

Where to stay in Miami

Miami's South Beach boasts one of the largest collections of boutique hotels in the country. Though it can be quite expensive, staying in this area ensures proximity to the city's best shoreline, clubs, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention Art Deco buildings. Mid-Beach and downtown also make great places to stay, offering some superb apartment rentals and small hotels, though the neighborhoods are not as glamorous as South Beach. If you're traveling on a budget, avoid the high season during winter months. If money is no object, get a room with a view before it gets too hot along the famous stretch of Collins Avenue between 15th and 23rd Street.

  • I am not a fan of modern art, but The Walls is an amazing place to spend an afternoon. In fact, just walk around the whole area and be ready to take many photos. There are many other murals outside of...  more »
  • This is a great place to be outdoors and enjoy the sun. A once run down neighborhood (still has that urban feel). This is not Disney, real outdoor art, see the usual wall drawings and mingle with the ...  more »

  • Some nice pieces of art if you like more the interpretive dance of the art world. I wasn't big fan of most, but there were some worthwhile things to view. However, the area made sense and there were places to eat within walking distance. Not a bad stop.
  • Amazing. Even if you're not in to street art this place would be great as a general tourist visit. For those who are interested in street art it doesn't stop at the Wynwood Walls fence. The entire surrounding area is covered in art like a biker gang is covered in tattoos. The neighborhood seems to be gentrifying. I felt perfectly safe walking around during the day by myself, but I wouldn't want to walk around the neighborhood at night except the main drag in front of Wynwood Walls.
  • Went with a friend last Sunday-definitely worth seeing if you like art or are looking for a fun, artsy scene. We paid $10 for all-day parking just around the corner at a lot with a guard. We got there early so it was pretty quiet at first but the crowds started to pick up as the morning went on. There are lots of shops and restaurants around and pretty much every building in the district has art on the walls. We really enjoyed!
  • this place has lots of art to look at, it's literally everywhere you look, even at the small shops. this is a very good place to go if you're looking for something to do on your free time. there are some more art in very lonely streets but there are some very sketchy people sometimes walking through there and i didn't feel safe being alone so if you have no protection or have very valuable belongings then please be cautious about who is around you.
  • This place was awesome. The staff and security were cool. Very friendly and courteous. There's alot to see and you can purchase art if you so desire. Met cool people also.
