The Wynwood Art Murals on New Year’s Eve

A mural in the Wynwood Walls by popular artist Obey.

The Wynwood Walls in Miami are the brain child of Tony Goldman, and were created in 2009. Blocks and blocks of old warehouses and building spaces have been transformed into canvases for street and graffiti artists from all around the world.

Goldman references his friend Jeffery Deitch in calling this project a “Museum of the Streets”. The Wynwood Walls Program has seen over 50 artists representing over 16 countries.

Even outside of the designated project area, murals have become extremely popular, and make up a large portion of this area of Miami. They serve as a representation to Miami’s diverse culture and artistic prevalence.
