Very few city reclamation projects are as cool as the 'Wynwood Walls' in Miami. The initiative is aimed at restoring the deteriorating industrial area, with hopes of populating the streets with pedestrians, graffiti enthusiasts and anyone fascinated with street art culture.

Renowned community leader Tony Goldman is the visonary and founder of the 'Wynwood Walls' in Miami. His goal was to establish a neighborhood that celebrates all things encapsulated in street culture. Goldman invited an international cast of street artists to transform the area into a public museum. Using six abandoned warehouse buildings and a parking lot as their canvas, the artists have converted the neighborhood from a desolate wasteland to a flourishing art exhibit.

Goldman believes that by transforming the community, it will now become a hotspot for artists, students and other interested citizens, where ideas of creativity, innovation and inspiration can be fostered.
