Actually, you don't have to build one. You just have to paint it! Les Flâneurs love a good art district and Miami delivers with amazing panache!
While you can find "Wynwood Walls" on Google Maps, our recommendation would be to take the People Mover to get there (oddly, not a route covered by Google.) Well, you can't get all the way there on this Disneyland-Style "monorail," but you can get close enough to catch a Miami Trolley the rest of the way. You get an amazing tour of the fabulous architecture in downtown Miami and both rides are FREE! Just show up at any People Mover stop and talk to a fellow passenger for directions. That's what we did!
Like many great art districts, this one is in a transitional neighborhood. Count on the artists to know what is cheap and hip! There are galleries, shops, restaurants and, yes, walls!
And these walls can speak for themselves. Love the way the speaker on this wall is incorporated as the goose eye!
They are dripping with color... not always in the direction you might expect.
Some have chiseled features...
Everybody loves a baby!
There are creatures galore...
Though not all are found on walls.
WTF! We need another week to cover all the galleries!
Gotta go back soon, maybe for longer. The city needs at least another week!
