MAP NO. 6: WYNWOOD
Gallery hopping in Miami’s answer to Chelsea.
For the first time in years, Miami’s art scene isn’t just for major collectors—and the booming Wynwood gallery district is one happy consequence of Art Basel’s success. Go on the second Saturday of every month from
7 to 10 P.M., when galleries and studios are open to the public and pouring free wine. Plan
to start at about 7:30
at Cisneros. From there, drive
up to Diana Lowenstein,
snag a free parking spot in the lot, and do the rest of your exploring on foot.
