Wynwood's Street Art and Murals

1 of 60

Morgan Coleman

 

Every December, hundreds of artists converge on Wynwood in the weeks before Art Basel’s satellite fairs open. With spray paint, a few bucks from building owners, and determination to display their brilliance, they layer over last year’s work and transform Miami’s former garment district once again. These murals have taken a neighborhood that atrophied 50 years ago when a railroad strike cut off its warehouses, and turned it into a place where swarming tourists photograph walls freshly painted by masters and neophytes alike.
