Wynwood Arts District has become one of the most popular places in Miami since art has transformed it into a cultural center with dozens of galleries and museums, outdoor restaurants and great walls painted by emerging artists; It has its epicenter in NW 2nd Ave between 25th & 26th St. This area, which has more than 15,000 residents, is a diverse mixture of great condominiums and elegant lofts where art festivals are celebrated. You can also visit The Shops at Midtown, which is a new development of modern stores such as Target, West Elm and Nordstrom Rack, or you can also visit small “vintage” or design boutiques. There are recording studios in this part of the city and also events which welcome residents or tourists of Miami. Its spaces, full of colors, lines, paintings and portraits, are used to show some exhibitions within the famous program of Art Basel.
