Located in the heart of Wynwood arts neighborhood, the Museum of Graffiti exhibits the work of the thousands of graffiti artists who have transformed walls in our public spaces into vibrant masterpieces.
Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s in large cities all over the United States new art form was invented that started with kids writing their names on walls in their neighborhoods. The wall writings quickly developed to become more elaborate and decorative. Taking on unique and distinguishable signifiers like arrows, crowns and other innovations through design and color, this became the blueprint for tags, throw-ups, masterpieces, and the elaborate works seen today.
Fifty years later, the Museum of Graffiti was formed to preserve graffiti’s history and celebrate its emergence in design, fashion, advertising, and galleries. The Museum experience includes an indoor exhibition space, eleven exterior murals, a fine art gallery, and a world-class gift shop stocked with limited edition merchandise and exclusive items from the world’s most talented graffiti artists.
