Wynwood Art walk was created to showcase the art galleries within the Wynwood Art District. Art enthusiasts can walk into the galleries along North Miami Avenue on the second Saturday of each month. This event used to take place on the first Saturday of the month, but it has since been combined with the Design District and the dates have changed. There are more than 60 galleries to visit along with the Design District businesses, which typically focus on interior design, but also have some art gallery offerings. So put on your comfy walking shoes and treat your eyes to some great artwork. Most galleries offer free alcohol and snacks, but these goodies go quickly, so arrive early if you want to partake.
