Who'll save Wynwood from itself? That was the question on many minds at Books & Books in Coral Gables Tuesday night, when ARTtuesdays/MIAMI presented a panel to discuss the future of the district that's become so successful it's actually a problem.
As New Times reported in 2011, and then the Miami Herald restated earlier this week, Wynwood's community is bursting at the seams, and gallerists are complaining about vandalism, food trucks, poverty, budget shortfalls, artistic displacement, and the neighborhood's new party atmosphere. Those are just the core issues brought up during the hour-and-a-half meeting that looked more like a high school debate class gone wrong.
