Wynwood Art Walk, Miami

On the 2nd Saturday of every month, the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami has an art walk.  Over 60 galleries open their doors.  
Wall of Art

All I can say is: go. You'll love it. The art ranges from massive murals on the walls of former factories to precise oils to metal dragonflywoman sculptures. Moonlight and warm Florida breezes carry eclectic music out into the street. Industrial buildings include an auto body shop that somehow adds to the urban art feel.  You can stop by a food truck and pick up something tasty if you're feeling peckish. Kids, families, hipsters, art-ers, tourists: it's a lively crowd where everyone is welcome.

And the art: amazing.

The painting on the right is called "The Three Graces." As
with all these pieces, I neglected to write down
artist names. I particularly wish I had for that one -
gorgeous work.
