In Miami | Wynwood Walls

With real estate developer Tony Goldman in charge, the blighted Wynwood neighborhood in Miami found redemption in his plan of paint-toting saviors.  Since 2009, street artists from all over the world have been invited to leave their mark on the walls throughout Wynwood, creating a dreamscape of delicious urban delirium–color, pattern, oddities, all painted on the exteriors of otherwise-forgotten warehouses.pic4We wandered the area last Sunday morning–when shops and restaurants were closed.  With the streets devoid of people and cars, we felt like we had this otherworld all to ourselves.
pic22pic20pic13Block after block, split by intersections of patched asphalt and spray-painted sidewalks, we walked in a place where art saves the day.  Art as hero.  Color as king.  pic7pic10www.tphblog.compic23pic8 pic9pic3pic6It is a must-see if you are in Miami.  And, go on a Sunday morning to walk within a dream.www.tphblog.comwww.tphblog.comTo know more about the original Wynwood Walls and the surrounding buildings, check out the website.
