Wynwood Walls: A Street Art Museum in Miami

by Vivien Park

Once a complex of abandoned factory buildings and parking lots, the Wynwood Walls in Miami is now the world's largest concentration of commissioned murals. Since it opened in 2009 for Art Basel Miami, the collection has expanded to include over 30 artists from around the world. It will be featured in the pilot season of "Here Comes the Neighborhood," a documentary series exploring the transformative power of public art. In the months leading up to Art Basel Miami, episodes of the series will premiere for free at hctn.tv.
