You can't spell "heart of the city" without "art." And the inaugural edition of the Wynwood Art Fair proves it. We know the Lotus House women and children's shelter, which all proceeds benefit, but so will all the people who flocked to NW Sixth Avenue to get in on the action, and the artists who made it happen. We look forward to many more years of this great event. For now, here are some pictures from the fair, and if you're reading this today, Sunday, make it out there and see for yourself. The fair runs till 6 p.m.
