Art in Miami

I only had an afternoon in Miami so I focused in on two art sites I'd been wanting to see. The first was the Perez Museum, which was fantastic - an awesome collection, and large enough to be worthwhile while still small enough to be manageable.

The second was the Wynwood Walls mural district, which was equally great, though also a bit perplexing due to its corporate overtones; the pieces in some areas being attributed and others not; gentrification and other complexities.
