Wynwood Has Fabulous Street Art, Giant Socioeconomic Chasm

Wynwood's world class collection of street art has had a monumental effect on the neighborhood, and the works are visual marquees of its transformation. The extremely high-art graffiti is also somewhat oxymoronic and contradictory.

This is an irony the neighborhood is just beginning to tackle.
