Readers' Choice: Wynwood Second Saturday Art Walk
If you haven't been to the Bird Road Art District, you're missing out on the walk that does away with galleries and takes you into the working studios of two dozen professional artists who have turned an industrial strip near train tracks into a hotbed of Latin American art. See the paint-dripped warehouse walls where their work is created, and the sketches, tools, and muses that inspire them. From live, custom glassblowing at Matthew Miller's Nickel Glass studio, to massive sculpting at Esteban Blanco's space, radical art at Luis Fuentes's, provocative installations at Ray Azcuy's, and Latin expressionism at Mano Fine Arts, you'll find a full range of emerging and established artists hard at work. Free parking, a complimentary shuttle service looping through the district, food trucks, and free wine make for a convenient adventure in a creatively thriving district. Check it out every third Saturday of the month.

Awesome! It is a great deserved recognition for all the artists participating in the "Bird Road Art Walk". Everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the Artists works every 3rd Saturday of each month!

I so agree with the choice of the Bird Road Art District for best art walk, this is not a pretty pastel colored yuppie enclave of galleries and pretentious eateries...this is a corner of the city where people work and work hard...among the body shops, iron workers and furniture repair shops are scattered group of hard working artists...the square concrete wharehouse exteriors give way to colorful eclectic studios inside, big open spaces both rustic and elegant provide shelters and venues to a varied selection of styles, mediums and techniques..not too mention the mix of young and established artists from all over the world that mirrors Miami's fantastic ethnic quilt. All this just a stones throw away from the Gables and South Miami to the east and Pinecrest and Kendall to the south...I am a little biased since I have had the honor to exhibit my work at the wonderful venue of Aperture Studios, a must stop on the walk...my studio is located just west in the Westchester area and this evolving district provides artistic fellowhip just a few minutes away....Congrats too all involved, ABRAZO - Tony Mendoza
