HISTORY OF THE WYNWOOD WALLS
In the early 2000's, Wynwood was much like any other industrial urban neighborhood that had fallen on hard times. It had its share of failed manufacturing businesses, abandoned warehouses, and crime. Pedestrian activity was non-existent. Joey Goldman was tasked with finding the next zone for the Goldman Family; he discovered Wynwood.
Enter Tony Goldman, founder of Goldman Properties. Rather than work to erase what others considered blight, Tony envisioned a town center that highlighted what made Wynwood authentic and provided a place for people of all walks of life, from all over the world, to congregate, explore, and be inspired. In 2009, the Wynwood Walls was born. Today, the exterior walls serve as giant canvases for the greatest street art collection ever assembled in one place.
In eight years, The Wynwood Walls has helped ignite one of the largest art movements in history, elevating street art to a genre that is widely respected by art lovers of all economic classes and changing the paradigm of how people interact with art. Thought-provoking and celebratory of creativity and talent, The Wynwood Walls have become a focal point of what is happening in the world of street art. Since its inception, The Wynwood Walls has been a platform for more than 90 artists, representing 20 countries, and covering over 85,000 square feet of walls.
