Wynwood Walls | Public Art in Miami

The Wynwood Walls are a public collection of mural art by professional artists in the Wynwood district of Miami, Florida. The public park was developed by community consultant Tony Goldman in 2009. Many of the world’s greatest street and graffiti artists have contributed work in the park such as Kenny Scharf, Futura, Retna and Shepard Fairey. Dealer Jeffrey Deitch co-curated the murals back during the inaugural year. Goldman noted that the duo strived for a diverse clan of artists of international backgrounds. The walls have been internationally acclaimed by numerous media outlets and draw thousands of international visitors every year.
