On the second Saturday of every month, the Wynwood District in Miami, Florida is home to a cultural event that has been gathering momentum ever since 2002, when Art Basel decided to travel from Switzerland and officially grace the magic city with its presence.  I’m talking about Art Walk.

The reason why I still attend the event on a regular basis is because there is always easy, free parking available in the heart of the galleries, and once you park it’s brisk walking after that.  I should also mention that the wine, champagne, and beer are free too, as well as the snack spreads, but it’s really the parking that makes this event feasible in my books, especially since I’ve made it a tradition to carry in tow a big bottle of Baltika 9 bought from my local liquor store:  The sparkle just works better.

Due to the regularity of the event, I’ve decided to make it a habit to post some of the artwork I digest, some of which is quite stimulating even without a statement from the artist.

(I would blame the Baltika 9 for my carelessness, but the truth is that there was no plaque to inform me of either the title of the painting or the artist, and no curator was in sight.)

(Okay, this time you can blame the Baltika 9 – I’m just being honest.  That said, you should know that I always go to Wynwood with my designated driver.  Don’t drink and drive.)
