Miami’s Wynwood Arts District is 100% eye candy. You’ve already seen my article about the sidewalk art and now I’m going to tell you a bit about the Wynwood Walls and Wynwood Doors. In a future article I’ll tell you about the rest of the area, but with so much to share, it has to be broken up.
As I said earlier, I had never visited this area before. I had heard of it, but never went. The Wynwood Walls were started in 2009 and the Doors were added in 2010. This is an “enclosed” area, it’s all outdoors but there is an actual (free) entrance and it is not out in the street.
I found the art here to be pretty amazing though in a smaller scale than what is outside – simply a limit of the wall space available. I was very pleasantly surprised to a Peter Tunney gallery with a lot of his work on display, including his Giant Polaroid Project. These were Polaroid photos taken with a 20×24 Polaroid camera that was actually on display. I did not take any photographs of this work out of respect for him and his creative work – after all, it was in a private gallery setting, not outdoors in public streets like the street art all around.
Enough talking (or writing) and let’s get to some photographs of the art on display.
If you want to know more about this area, roughly it’s on NW 2nd Avenue with the largest concentration being between NW 23rd and NW 29th Street – plus many of the side streets around there.
I will go back over and over again because as with any art gallery, the work will change over time.
