2520 NW 2 Ave., Wynwood
Easily one of the most Instagrammed places in Miami, Wynwood Walls is the brainchild of developer Tony Goldman, who was key in the neighborhood's transformation from forgotten industrial zone to hipster paradise. The industrial buildings here, many of which lack windows, made the perfect canvas for Goldman to bring in what reads like a who's who of graffiti artists, including Shepard Fairey, Ron English, Jeff Soto, Os Gemeos, and Barry McGee, to paint major large-scale murals. Though Goldman has passed away, his wife and children bring new artists to the project every year, breathing fresh life into his colorful legacy. While the best way to experience these pieces is simply to walk around the neighborhood, street art nerds may want to book a tour, as they dig into the specifics behind some of the major pieces.
O Cinema Wynwood
90 NW 29th St., Wynwood
This nonprofit indie theater in a converted warehouse is steps from the Rubell Collection and the Wynwood Walls—though it's tucked away behind the street, so it can be a bit tricky to find. O Cinema regularly screens independent, foreign, art, and classic pop culture films inside the cozy 112-seat theater, and it occasionally hosts outdoor film screenings on the patio. The Wynwood location is the original, but there are now theaters in Miami Beach and Miami Shores, too.
