Wynwood Walls 2010

In the last few years, the Wynwood area of Miami has gone from a desolate no-mans land to a thriving arts hub littered with dozens of local galleries and some of the best street art in the country. At the heart of this cultural explosion lies the Wynwood Walls.

Originally created in conjunction with New York powerhouse gallery Deitch Projects and real estate developer Goldman Properties, the Wynwood Walls now boast a Shepard Fairey designed restaurant, pop up gallery space (see our post on LeVine's Urban Alchemists show from yesterday), and of course, buckets of street art. This year Ron English, Jeff Soto, Ryan McGinness and Logan Hicks (amongst many more) blessed the open air space with new murals while Kenny Scharf brought down his infamous customized Airstream trailer. Get a look at many of the new additions that took place this year, here on Hi-Fructose.
