Following its widely acclaimed inaugural edition, the groundbreaking Art Wynwood Fair, enthusiastically embraced by the international art dealer community, Miami and the Wynwood Arts District will return for its second year during Presidents Weekend February 14-18, 2013. Art Wynwood will take place in the spacious 100,000-square-foot Art Miami Pavilion, which attracted more than 60,000 attendees during the 2012 edition of Art Miami.

It’s the first opportunity to acquire some of the finest pieces of contemporary art from 70 top international galleries before the Fair opens to the public.
