For five days in February, Art Wynwood will bring the Wynwood Arts District to life. The area has attracted artists from all over the world who have transformed old warehouse buildings into provocative murals and dynamic street art.
If you haven't been yet, Wynwood is a must-see, edgy and urban Miami neighborhood that has evolved into an international arts district. Galleries, restaurants and shops line the sidewalks. It’s a place you must see for yourself. And what better opportunity than Art Wynwood on Feb. 13-17, 2014.
Did you know that luxury brand Bergdorf Goodman did their spring catalog shoot in Wynwood?

The Art Wynwood fair will feature 70 international galleries showing emerging, cutting-edge, contemporary and modern works alongside street artists, whose art has gained recognition in the mainstream. The event coincides with the Miami International Yacht & Brokerage Show (located less than five miles from the Art Wynwood pavilion). Since the fair’s inception in 2012, a central feature has been its highlight of street art, murals, pop surrealism and other urban art genres from the contemporary underground movement.
You’ll want to check out a collaboration with Cash, Cans & Candy, an international festival of street art from Vienna, Austria. Curator Katrin-Sophie Dworczak has lined up a global who’s who of street artists to create original works onsite.
