Art Wynwood Show Miami
For four years now, Art Wynwood has held their winter art show the same time as the Miami Boat Show. This year they had 66 exhibitors. According to Grela Oriahuela everyone really brought their A game. “I’m really thrilled with the work that everyone’s brought,” says Oriahuela. “There’s both local and international galleries here. We did some special projects with local galleries in a way to express how Miami is making art and doing beautiful things in the art community year round. This includes a Solo Miami Project with Fredric Snitzer, Emerson Dorsh, Primary Projects, Anthony Spinello, and Gucci Vuitton all participating with a local artist.”
In the photographs below you’ll see everything from a crocheted bicycle, urinal made of white buttons, an old victrola, woman’s face made out of wine bottle corks, pets enjoying the show while being pushed in a stroller and nude art with banana peels.
Four years ago this art show started with 48 exhibitors. Last year they had 30k people walk through the show. This year they anticipated 35k people. Not bad for an art show still in its infancy. It is now considered the most important art fair of the winter season in Miami. It runs alongside the Miami Boat Show and the Coconut Grove Festival. Plus it’s a holiday weekend.
Whether you’re into art or not sure how to appreciate it, there’s something at this show for everyone. “It’s modern, contemporary and emerging, ” says Oriahuela. “We do something other art fairs don’t do which is exhibit a lot of work that’s inspired by the street art movement.” Because it takes place over the weekend you can take your time and go back again. You can get to know both the dealers and artists because a lot of them come and spend the weekend as well. It’s an art fair for high end collectors and art enthusiast alike. During the show you’ll find galleries making multi-million dollar deals, galleries that are emerging, and people who have never bought art work before. This is the best way to get introduced to art. It’s not as intimidating as one would think and it’s a great place for people to buy their first art piece.
It’s also an awesome place for the kids. They have a kids center available to allow their parents the ability to take a nice leisurely walk around. The kids are being watched by the Miami children’s museum and they do art activities with them. Kids learn about art and are taken on little tours around the exhibits.
Art Wynwood is worth taking time out of your busy schedule. As mentioned above, there is a whole range of artwork for you to enjoy. For more information or to get tickets for next year go to:
