Travel Inspiration: The Colorful Wynwood Walls and Arts District

wynwood-walls-miami-1

Earlier this year I was in Miami with the Thompson Miami Beach and got a chance to spend a morning over in the Wynwood neighborhood to experience the Wynwood Walls. Since 2009 the Walls have welcomed over 50 street art and graffiti artists from 16 different countries to cover and revitalize the walls of the Miami warehouse district neighborhood with their works.

Numerous mural artworks await visitors ranging from symmetrical art to works with characters and symbols, and the art expands further then the Wynwood Walls and throughout the district. Get a taste of what you’ll find at the Walls and in the Wynwood Arts District below, plus a look at my springtime styling with Original Penguin’s new take on the classic polo inspired by Miami street style.
