DWNTWN Art Days Walking Tour: Nazi Photo Ops and Half-Naked Icelanders (Photos)

DWNTWN Art Days transformed downtown Miami this weekend with more than 130 public art events ranging from sidewalk dance performances to Reed van Brunschot's giant inflatable Godzilla swiping at the passing Metromover from the Christ Fellowship Church balcony.

It also featured a series of four unique walking tours led by artist T. Wheeler Castillo, who placed the downtown Miami art scene into larger historical contexts for his gaggles of humidity-and-art loving amblers. At least that was the idea. On the tour that Cultist tagged along for, we were too distracted too notice by the weird racist board games and the shirtless Icelanders whose jiggling bellies assailed our shores with all the lustful enthusiasm of their Viking forebears.

But join us anyway as we shake off the art hangover and look through our photos from the tour to see if, in spite of our best efforts, we learned something about downtown Miami art.
