From the first time I saw a picture of Wynwood Walls in Miami, I knew I had to see it in person. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. When we found ourselves in Miami earlier this month, I made it a point to take the girls, hoping that they would enjoy it.

The reaction to the news was split. Lucia, who loves drawing, painting and all things art, was ecstatic. Iyla and Falynn were skeptical that walking around and looking at a bunch of painted walls could be fun.

As we got nearer, the girls excitement grew. There was a lot of ooh-ing and aah-ing and pointing, especially with the cartoon characters.

Lucia was in awe from the moment parked the car. We hadn’t even stepped into the gates of Wynwood Walls yet, and she was already overwhelmed.

When we finally found the way into the gates (which took us a little longer than I’m comfortable admitting), it was even more beautiful than I had imagined, or had seen in photos.

Out of nowhere, Falynn asked for Super Dad’s cell phone and began taking pictures of everything around her. I could tell that she was enjoying herself but then she suddenly turned to me and yelled, “Mom… I had no idea it would be THIS cool! Thank you for bringing us here!”

Every single wall is a new experience. The talent, the detail and the bright, bold colors, were just sensory overload for us. I wanted to photograph it all. Though Iyla was sure she wasn’t going to enjoy Wynwood Walls, she was totally speechless (which NEVER happens).

We’ve always encouraged our girls to express themselves through art, so to be able to show them that art can make such a huge impact was an incredible lesson for them. As we walked through each section, they realized that these artists get paid to do something that they love. And I’m sure they saw a glimpse into their future.

Just when I thought I had seen it all, we walked into the final area, which featured the extraordinary art of Brazilian street artist, Eduardo Kobra. I’m not sure I can even describe the feeling I felt. These portraits of children from all over the globe, took my breath away. Here they were, children with different cultures, from different countries, all side by side, in vibrant colors, proudly displaying their traditional garb. It was a message of unity that both broke my heart and made me hopeful, all at the same time.

Inside the building, they displayed a number of Eduardo Kobra’s pieces, including Anne Frank, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela. But of all of the pieces I saw that day, the one that had the biggest impact on me, was The Refugees Scream, which features a mother, carrying her young child and walking away from a law enforcement officer and his dog. That one piece of art just broke me, because it hits so close to home and speaks to a serious issue that is happening right now, in the US.

Every single piece had meaning and a message that was so powerful, you couldn’t help but stop.

We weren’t able to walk around as much as I would have liked so we’ve discussed going back to Wynwood Walls again soon.  Hopefully next time we can check out the art outside the walls. There is so much to see and we want to experience it all.
