Wynwood Art District – I headed to Miami recently for a 4-day weekend. My good friend from Naples joined me and we decided to be the typical tourists by riding the big red bus around the highlights of Miami. Our tour guides were great guys who loved to share their knowledge of the city they live in and love.
One area that caught our attention was the Wynwood Art District. I had heard how Miami was a thriving art district but had not experienced it until this trip. As we sat on the upper level of the double decker bus we were able to see wonderful presentations of various types of art on the sides of the old warehouse district. Wynwood exhibits the art of some of the most renowned street artists.
Love the figure creeping up the steps on this building.
Eyes – I love eyes!
This red building caught my eye. Love the design on it.
Rats! Ugh!! But very fitting next to a construction site. 🙂
A bunch of bad guys.
The next day we headed back to this wonderful district and walked around. Art was on many walls. This was an alley across where we hopped off the bus.
And there is a center with several pieces of art all together called Wynwood Walls.
This is in an entrance to a nice restaurant.
The people in this photo help to give perspective of how large the walls were.
Love these large fingers.
A view of the large fingers from afar. The doors lead into galleries featuring particular artists. (
And they were a nice air-conditioned break from the heat.)
A nice city scape in the midst of everything.
More of the Wynwood Walls.
Here is a photographer taking a photo of a cool looking guy sitting amongst the fans.
And more eyes!
I plan to go back sometime when it is much cooler when we can walk around leisurely. Here is Jane and I during this awfully hot day.
