Wynwood is not only an up-and-coming neighborhood in Miami, but is quickly becoming the city’s art ‘mecca’. With a countless array of galleries, it’s hard to choose where to stop and check out some great pieces. Here’s a list of the top galleries in Wynwood we know you’ll love!
1. Plant the Future
Address: 2511 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Argentinean artist, Paloma Teppa, doesn’t use the traditional paint, canvas and easel that most artists do. Her art is made through live plants – pushing the barrier of her artistic expression through new and innovative creations. She’s been in Wynwood over 4 years, making her one of the firsts artists in the area! You can stop by Plant the Future and grab your own terrarium or figurine.

This gallery exhibits eclectic collections from mixed media artists. The gallery features a new artist every month for the monthly Art Walks which take place the second Saturday of every month. Pan American Art Projects showcases work from a variety of areas around the world; from Argentina to Cuba to Jamaica but they focus on building a “bridge between North and South American cultures by presenting and exhibiting artists from both regions concurrently”.
3. David Castillo Gallery
Address: 2234 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Some say this is the best gallery in Wynwood due to David’s taste in art which was acquired through his Art History studies at Yale and Angelicum in Rome. At the David Castillo Gallery you’ll come across pieces that have been showcased in other prestigious spaces such as the MoMa in New York or the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Step into this maze-like gallery and discover some truly amazing pieces!

This is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for some unique work by up-and-coming artists.
5. The Wynwood Walls
Address: NW 25th St, Miami, FL 33127
Although you won’t be able to purchase any of the pieces at the Wynwood Walls (because they’re all murals), we definitely recommend strolling around to admire these massive pieces. These murals have given street art in Miami an appreciation from locals and travelers alike. Gawk over work from artists that traveled from Japan, Ukraine, Brazil and many other locations, just to create their mural.The Wynwood Walls have expanded to Wynwood Doors and even some walls in nearby areas.
