A golf-cart tour of Wynwood will give you a good understanding of the layout, magnitude, and history of the Wynwood Art District, allowing you to see hundreds of murals in all corners of the area as well as many opportunities to take pictures where you choose. When you join me on a golf cart tour of Wynwood, you will have the comfort of the ride but the immediacy that the open air provides. Even driving at a low speed, I will have time to take you to areas of Wynwood that a walking tour cannot reach and tourists are unlikely to find on their own. Wynwood is a literal magnet for artists, who use every surface available from blank fire walls to warehouses, to light poles, and leafless trees. Murals show up in parking lots, by railroad tracks, on schools, and houses, in an ever-expanding and ever-changing area. I will tell you as much as our time allows about artists both invited and not, about their techniques, and show you what some developers have done to try and preserve murals. I will show you some of the best out-of-the-way restaurants, and the spots where Wynwood people brew their own beer, and tell you about the fate of galleries in a rapidly rising real-estate market. I will do the driving and most of the talking; you will ask questions and snap pictures.
Orestes I founded Wynwood Art Walk Tours when I realized over a decade ago that people coming to Wynwood needed help navigating and understanding the phenomenon and the art. Each of my guides brings their unique perspective and art expertise to their tour as well as an accumulation of knowledge from both research and their personal experiences in Wynwood but also beyond. Thom, an artist, academic, and docent at other local art institutions, views Wynwood through the lens of gentrification and the evolution of graffiti to art. Kasey is a world-traveler and trained sommelier, who takes her love of art, wine, and culture seriously by studying it at the university level. Lance has lived and worked in hospitality on both coasts and hobnobbed with the likes of Andy Warhol, and he ties the Wynwood phenom to what he observed in New York City.
