A Heralding Editorial on Wynwood
In the following Herald editorial, the publication discusses the circumstances surrounding Wynwood and its now infamous monthly Art Walk.
Once a month, the Wynwood art district in downtown Miami holds a Saturday night art walk that has become so popular that some gallery owners and residents complain it has turned into little more than an excuse for a drunken street party.
They may have a point. But how about a little perspective, Miami?
An area that just a few years ago was a dying warehouse district in the heart of the city now boasts such vibrant nightlife that the second Saturday of every month, people flood the streets, sampling local restaurants, coffeehouses and bars.
True, most of them probably aren’t serious art buyers, supporting the many galleries that now call Wynwood home. That’s something to consider as Wynwood’s leaders plan its future.
