I spent the weekend in Miami and I can’t wait to go back. There is so much to do. I’m actually going to break up the weekend into multiple blog posts so stay tuned…
I had the opportunity to explore Wynwood Walls. Wynwood Walls is a popular destination in Miami featuring color murals by artists from around the world. Wynwood use to be an industrial neighborhood until a developer created Wynwood Walls. It is comprised of six separate warehouses and the exterior walls serve as giant canvases.
At first when I had decided to go to Wynwood I thought that I would be walking through a neighborhood with street graffiti. But little did I know Wynwood Walls is actually a sectioned off area that has large walls with colorful murals. The murals were absolutely beautiful. My favorite wall had two womens faces side by side in red, white and blue.
I can’t imagine how long it must have taken all of the artists to complete these works of art. It saddens me to think that they are on display for only a short while before they are painted over for a new artist.
Within Wynwood Walls they had an area gated off with an entrance that read “Wynwood Doors”. In this section they had even more murals. I fell in love with the below murals. They were memorizing.
Also, in this area they had a cluster of large rocks that you could climb on and take photos with. The rocks had a chalk design on them. It wasn’t easy to get on top but when I finally did I opted for a lotus pose.
Wynwood Walls Shop
By the entrance there was a gift shop. I was disappointed by their selection to be honest. They didn’t have a lot of souvenirs with the word “Wynwood Walls” on it. Except for a t-shirt. Not even a post card or magnet. Apparently they were sold out the cashier told me. The store mainly had books, toys, and framed pieces of art.
There were indoor exhibitions that I didn’t get a chance to see. It was starting to get late and I had somewhere else to be. A trip for another time. If you’re ever in Miami I would highly recommend you visit Wynwood Walls. It’s definitely worth seeing.
