Miami Street Art Layover Part 1

On Tuesday I had a layover in Miami before continuing on to Madrid, and took another opportunity to get out of the airport and see the murals at Wynwood Walls. I did this back in June 2015 and it was a great experience. On this visit, I found some of the previous murals, many new ones, and reminders that street art is not permanent.

It is interesting to compare how much can change in the area. Last June I took a photo of Faith 47's amazing mural just down the street from Wynwood Walls, only to see the building under a complete makeover in Tuesday's walk. These murals only exist for a limited amount of time on these walls, sometimes replaced by other art or new buildings. I am glad I was able to see the works by these talented artists and capture the memories in photo form.
