Third Annual Art Wynwood Celebrates Street Art On Presiden'ts Day Weekend

This weekend, 70 galleries from all over the world -- including 17 galleries from South Florida -- will feature modern works from emerging street artists in the third annual Art Wynwood.

The event celebrates the legitimacy and rising popularity of street art and graffiti -- Art Wynwood also claims to be the only street art fair in the world. Organizers intend to give street artists a platform to show their works to an international audience.

One of the fair's special exhibitions focuses on the work of women artists. Women on the Walls will feature 12 world-renown female street artists whose work is being presented at the Wynwood Walls.  

"There’s a whole set of really, really gifted female artists in the genre of street art who haven’t had the spotlight shone on them," Co-Curator and CEO of Goldman Properties, Jessica Goldman Srebnick told the Miami Herald. "For me, as a woman, I felt this was a really amazing opportunity to shine a light on incredible artists who happen to be women.”
