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 and admission is free. You can even take home a piece of Wynwood—the GO! Shop features a curated collection of limited edition prints from Wynwood artists.
