Along with that, English was able to capture the effects of lighting by using the natural shade of a tree to produce a menagerie of colors alluding to different times of day. To Ron English, painting in Wynwood was an experience that portrayed to him how art can help different parties understand how they can interact to help each other in order to cause a rebirth.
If you’re looking to experience Miami like a local, look no further than the vibrant Wynwood. Sometimes known as “El Barrio” due to its high concentration of Puerto Rican influences, Wynwood is a place where you can explore the growing art and culinary scene in our city. Graffiti-decorated walls created by local artists fill the area, creating an atmosphere of what the true Miami is like. The art on the walls are matched by the art that chefs are serving at their restaurants, and the Wynwood Food Tour succeeds are expressing how bohemian and culturally significant the area is becoming to the city.
Throughout our Wynwood Tour($69) you will have the opportunity to make your way throughout the Wynwood Walls. Conceived by Tony Goldman, a world-known community revitalizer known for his work in New York City, the Wynwood Walls are a sector of the Wynwood neighborhood making a statement with its commitment to graffiti and street art. Ever since its conception, the Wynwood area has drawn some of the world greatest artists to Miami in hopes of revitalizing the neighborhood by using the surrounding buildings and walls as a blank canvas to create an artistic movement.
Tours ($69) are held every Saturday at 12:30 PM and last between two to three hours. Expect to walk 1 mile with plenty of seated restaurant breaks and stops covering the unique art and fun local facts.
