If you’ve ever been to Wynwood for Second Saturdays Art Walk, then you know the people-watching is fantastic. For that reason, we have photographed Art Walk almost every month since we launched Beached Miami 18 months ago. We’ll be out on N.W. Second Avenue this coming Saturday, too, but this time around we want you to help us capture the scene.
To participate in the Insta Art Walk Challenge, simply share a photo from Art Walk via Instagram (and/or Twitter) with #instawalk305 and @beachedmiami in the caption. Photos from the challenge will be featured on beachedmiami.com on the morning of Monday, March 12, in place of our usual in-house photo essay. All participants will receive photographer credit and be eligible to win a prize from one of the Insta Art Walk Challenge sponsors (see below).
There is only rule: All photos must be from the Art Walk on Saturday, March 10. As for what to photograph, there are no rules. Share photos of faces and sculptures and toy poodles and hairstyles and trash mounds and drum circles and downward dogs and roasting pigs and graffitied walls and whatever else you may encounter. The Insta Art Walk Challenge is an opportunity to experience a communal gathering through the collective eye and lens of Miami, and we want to see it all.
As prizes for our favorite photos, we have a $20 gift certificate from Panther Coffee, a $20 gift certificate from Jimmy’z Kitchen, a $20 gift certificate from Ms. Cheezious, a $20 bar tab from Lester’s, a voucher for four free drinks from Wood Tavern (~$25 value), a voucher for two free pizzas from Joey’s (~$30 value), and a hardcover catalog of the work of Miami-based artist Robert Thiele from Dorsch Gallery ($30 value). We will announce the winners on beachedmiami.com on Monday.
Many thanks to our sponsors, all independent business located in Wynwood, for generously offering up great prizes.
