Miami Design District Art Walk - August 10, 2013

Miami Design District Gallery Walk

The second Saturday of every month is the day, or rather night, to visit this great up and coming neighborhood when the District does the "Art Walk".

Galleries are open to the public and host events, many serving refreshments and cocktails.

This entire area of the city is in constant change. It has been fun watching how it keeps evolving as it tries to find its identity. It is for the design and art lovers out there, as well as the well-heeled fashion trotters.

There is the art galleries, design showrooms, gourmet restaurants, and a roster of top-of-the-line fashion houses, all in a thriving compact area.

When? Saturday August 10, 2013 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Where? Roughly between 38th St and 42nd St and N. Miami Avenue and NE 2nd Avenue. CAUTION: The area surrounding the Design District is a very doubtful neighborhood, please exercise caution when getting here and back.

How Much? FREE!

Wynwood Second Saturday - August 10, 2013

Miami Wynwood 
District Street Art

Like its counterpart at the Miami Design District, Wynwood is an emerging neighborhood in a decaying part of town that has been revitalized and is transforming the art scene in Miami, but this is where the likeness stops.

Wynwood is best known for its street art and splashy murals and over 70 galleries and counting.

On Second Saturdays, the place is on overdrive, crowds come to enjoy their art and their food trucks. A must for street art lovers, but if you are not into crowds, definitely not for you.

When? Saturday August 10, 2013 - 6:00pm to 11:00 pm

Where? Roughly between Biscayne Boulevard and I-95 and NW 36th Street and NW 20th Street. CAUTION: The area surrounding the Wynwood District is a very doubtful neighborhood, please exercise caution when getting here and back.

How Much? FREE
