Once the Puerto Rican barrio of Miami, Wynwood is now known as the largest street art gallery in the world! Made famous by the yearly Art Basel art fair, the Wynwood area has exploded into one of the hippest neighborhoods in the country. From wheat pastes to murals, stencils to stickers, every inch of the neighborhood is covered in art. This walking tour of the neighborhood will include information about the street art coupled with the history of the neighborhood, the ins-and-outs of the current changes, and the way that Wynwood fits into the overall picture of Miami. I can give tours in both English and Spanish, and I can arrange for bike rentals for an additional fee. Come and check out Maimi's street art hub!
Hello there! My name is Alfredo, and I am a PhD candidate at Princeton University. I'm a native of Miami, but I moved out in 2004 to go to school and work. I moved back to Miami in the summer of 2014 to do my research and writing for my thesis. My project is about Wynwood: the history of the neighborhood, the changes it's currently going through, and the relevance of this place for public policy. I've come to know all the details of this place: from the local business owners to the larger property developers, from the street art to the public parks. Depending on what you are interested in, I can give tours about specific topics: (1) the street art and the economy behind "getting a wall"; (2) the history of Wynwood and its place in the wider history of Miami; (3) art, business, and neighborhood change.
