Art is basically synonymous with Miami – it can be found all around the city! You just have to look for it, or at least accidentally stumble upon it. If you’re looking for the perfect backdrop for photos or to switch up your scenery when you have your daily power walks, why not check out these sets of stairs along with the beautiful sights near them?
Here are 5 amazing painted staircases to climb around Miami.
1. Wynwood Jungle
Starting in Miami’s art epicenter, Wynwood, this stunning jungle is home to several neighborhood businesses like The Salty Donut, Ooh Raw!, Osme Perfumery, Pez Loco, The Pink Room and more. The space was once known as the Wynwood Arcade, but it has since been fully transformed by Robert Rivani of Black Lion Investment Group with work by Deryn Cowdy and a botanical lion and flower ceiling brought to life by The Plant Guy.
Where: 50 NW 24th St, Miami, FL 33127
2. Mural on the corner of 5th avenue and 29th street, Wynwood
On an all-black building where Mapsi Trading Inc. once used to be, is a colorful large mural accompanied by a flight of stairs. The powerhouses behind the artwork include 777 Heaven Art, Nico, Barbara Hionides, Paint Pusher, Alucina and Chinachiic.
Where: 2899 NW 5th Ave, Miami, FL 33127
3. 888 Stargate at Club Space, Downtown Miami
Hitch a ride to outer space when you come across this cosmic neon-lit staircase made by Francisca Oyhanarte and a team of local artists. By passing through the glowing stars, aliens, snakes and hexagonal lights – which fit right in with the techno vibe of the nightclub – you’ll move away from your everyday, harsh reality to the next dimensional realm.
Where: 34 NE 11th St, Miami, FL 33132
4. Museum Garage, Miami Design District
Inside the world’s coolest and most unique parking garage (which of course doubles as a spot for photoshoots), is a hot pink playground with a tunnel slide, stairs and rope course! Remember to snap photos by the spiral staircase and check out the rest of the Miami Design District. Your car is parked in the garage, after all, so it won’t be a wasted trip!
Where: 90 NE 41st St. Miami, FL 33137
5. Staircase in lot down 24th street near 5th avenue, Wynwood
At a massive building in between Mana murals “Demonolith” by Dylan Egon and “Monarca del canto de las mariposas” by Osiris Rain, is a set of colorful and eclectic stairs that have been painted on by artists over the years, including Arte By Ivo.
