Wynwood Walls Street Art Tour
Walking Tour of the Wynwood Walls, which is the epicenter of the Wynwood Art District. Conceived by Tony Goldman and Jeffrey Dietch, it is a collection of curated murals by artists from around the world, on the walls of former warehouses. Your ticket will include the entry fee to this special area, but the tour will explore some murals outside the Walls as well.
What to Expect:
This is a walking tour, so it is a good idea to wear comfortable shoes though we are covering a short distance. As with all outdoor activity in South Florida, sunscreen and hat are also recommended.
Entering through the 26th Street entrance, we will start our exploration through the series of courtyards that makes up the Wynwood Walls. You will hear the story of how Wynwood rose from a neglected industrial/urban zone to Art District and the role of Tony Goldman in its development. Also, the guide will relate how the Walls are curated at Wynwood Walls and what their life span is. Then, strolling through the courtyards, called the Walls, Doors, and Gardens, we will pause at most of the murals, like Shepard Fairey’s depicting Tony Goldman in an homage (getting a replacement in December 2022). After exploring within the gated area, and if time permits, we will also visit some of the murals curated by the Wynwood Walls on the surrounding streets. The tour guide will talk about who the artists are, what their place is in street art history, what techniques they use, and what messages and meanings may be behind their work. Through the whole experience, you will have the opportunity to take in the art, snap photos, and ask questions and converse with your Guide and fellow group members about your impressions.
**At times, the Wynwood Walls closes for private events. If this is ever the case during this tour, we will offer complimentary tickets to join the tour on another date, but the current tour will still happen visiting Wynwood Walls curated murals outside of the Wynwood Walls park.
