The largest collection of street art in the U.S. is located in the Wynwood Arts District, with over 200 murals spanning 50 city blocks. You can check out pieces in the legendary Wynwood Walls in their online virtual gallery tour here. Many locally owned restaurants in the area also remain open for a lunch pick-up.
“With over 200 murals in such a concentrated area, the Wynwood neighborhood is like a living, breathing museum. The buildings act as huge canvases for artists from around the world to showcase their work and for the public to enjoy,” says Albert Garcia, Chairman of the Wynwood BID. “As we continue practicing social distancing, visitors and residents alike can travel to Wynwood, pick up lunch, stroll the colorful streets, and enjoy hundreds of vivid murals in the area.”
Sandrell Rivers Theater, I See Myself in You
Artists Nekisha Durrett and Hank Willis Thomas created this neon pink mural outside of Sandrell Rivers Theater at the Audrey M. Edmonson Transit Village. It celebrates the dynamic, cultural history of Liberty City and the diverse community of Miami-Dade County.
Even though retail stores are closed, there is plenty of art to be enjoyed throughout the district. Works like “Dollar Gallon III” by Virgil Abloh (2019) and the famous bubble dome, formally titled “Buckminster Fuller Fly’s Eye Dome” are available to view here.
The Biscayne Bay-adjacent 30-acre expanse, also called Museum Park, along is bordered by the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and the Phillip and Patricia Ross Frost Museum of Science. One of the many public art installations is the 39-foot-tall white sculpture titled Looking Into My Dreams, Awilda that was installed in 2017. Prior to finding its home in Miami, the piece was in Chicago’s Millennium Park.
