Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Launched during Art Basel, what began as a few commissioned murals to beautify the area has morphed into the city’s only outdoor street art park, featuring more than 40 murals from a roster of world-renowned artists, including Shepard Fairey, Ryan McGuinness, Kenny Scharf, How and Nosm, Faile, Retna, the Date Farmers and Liqen.

In late 2012, a major installation was added to the park as a tribute to Tony Goldman—the legendary neighborhood redeveloper who sculpted the Wynwood Art District from nondescript and decaying storefronts in the mid-2000s, and who passed away in September 2012. The Kenny Scharf Garden (2219 NW 2nd Avenue, at NW 22nd Street) features a landscaped garden, fountain, large-scale mural and Scharf's own 1960s-style Airstream trailer, complete with Day-Glo interior. Fairey also reworked his mural outside Goldman's Wynwood Kitchen & Bar to incorporate an image of the man himself.

Wynwood Walls is open to the public all year round. You can even take home a piece of Wynwood—the GO! Shop features a curated collection of limited edition prints from Wynwood artists.
