Despite what you read on Yelp, Wynwood Walls is not any painted wall west of North Miami Avenue and south of 34th Street. It's a specific urban art park sandwiched between Joey's and Wynwood Kitchen on NW Second Ave. It began with 12 murals in 2009 under the direction of Tony Goldman and Jeffery Dietch. The pair also commissioned several works outside of this block by artists like Barry McGee and Swoon.

And who doesn't want a Kenny Sharf stretched tight across their beer paunch?

Read the post on Miami New Time's art and culture blog blog to see which seven street artists will decorate Miami's favorite public art nook in the coming months.
