Wynwood Walls

Ask anyone where Miami’s most Instagram-ready spots are and they’ll point you towards Wynwood. The hip neighborhood north of downtown is known for its many vibrant murals by some of the world’s best known street artists. Once a cluster of warehouses, the unique outdoor museum was transformed into the Wynwood Walls in 2009. The must-see destination is a canvas for artworks from over 50 artists representing 16 countries. The murals have since migrated to the surrounding neighborhood. Spark envy in your many friends and followers by snapping a pic of the large-scale graffiti and street art lining the streets. One of our favorites is Ron English’s Hulk Boy, a polychromatic mural featuring his pop characters, Camo Deer, Masked Mickey, Hulk Boy, and the Yin Yang character.

The Bass

The funky contemporary art museum in Miami Beach presents artworks reflecting the spirit and international character of Miami Beach. The small collection of art, artifacts, and sculptures encompasses a wide range of media and artistic points of view that bring new thought to the diverse cultural context of Miami Beach. Visit the iconic Miami Mountain sculpture before entering The Bass, located at the southeast corner of Collins Park. Ugo Rondinone’s five brightly painted boulders stand 42 feet tall and are constructed of stone, steel, and paint. Inspired by the hoodoo rock formations of the Badlands, the sculpture’s fluorescent contrasting palates make it one of the most photographed landmarks in Miami Beach.
