North of downtown and NW 20th Street, the Wynwood Art District is home to one of the largest and most dynamic concentrations of art galleries in the nation. Though it’s relatively safe to explore, galleries are spread out and the area is dodgy at night, so this is one part of Miami best experienced by car. Highlights include the Rubell Collection, 95 NW 29th St (rfc.museum), a massive modern art collection housed in a warehouse that formerly held drugs confiscated by the federal authorities. Further north, the Design District (miamidesigndistrict.net), hemmed in by 36th and 41st streets between Miami Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard, is also worth a wander, crammed with hip restaurants and designer furniture stores. One standout studio here is Locust Projects, 155 NE 38th St #100 (locustprojects.org), a warehouse crammed with tantalizing multimedia installations.
