What a difference a decade makes. In 2003, when the first Second Saturday Art Walk was launched by a small group of artists, dealers, and indie curators, no one could have predicted that a blighted Wynwood neighborhood would grow to rival SoHo and become the epicenter of South Florida's booming art scene.
Now, 3,652 days later, Wynwood has become a world-class cultural destination that includes dozens of galleries and studios, private museums, and a collection of street murals that regularly attract thousands of art lovers each month to what is arguably the Magic City's biggest social scene.
For proof, just look at the lineup of shows, some new and others extended from last month, on view this weekend during the searing dog days of summer. There's plenty on tap for everyone, from first time revelers to those with the most discriminating eyes.
