Red Ribbon Ceremonies for First Wynwood Visitor Information StandsWednesday, October 8, 5:30pm-6pm – Gallery 212 Wynwood, 2407 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami Wynwood Arts District

The Art Experience, Inc. will celebrate the launch of its first two visitors information stands opening to the public in Wynwood this Wednesday, October 8th, 2014. One stand will be located at the corner of 24th Street and NW 2nd avenue (adjacent to Panther Coffee) and the 2nd stand will be located at 25th Street and NW 2nd Avenue (adjacent to the Wynwood Walls). Creative Founder Susana Baker launched The Art Experience, Inc. in 2009 as a company specializing in art and culinary tours for visitors and locals to enable their experience of the cultural side of Miami. The company tours over 100 visitors monthly and with its signature VIP tour Dine Design Explore the Arts has earned a 5 star rating on Trip Advisor. The Art Experience visitors stands will be free to the public.

Maps will be handed out and orientation tours will be available with a small donation. All tours are accompanied with a uniformed ‘Tourator’ who has been trained as a tour guide specializing in History and as a curator trained in the Arts. After 3 years in business it became apparent to Ms. Baker that every time she toured in Wynwood, visitors would approach her asking questions. Visitors would often follow her on tours to learn about the different artists, murals and the history of Wynwood. “Most visitors GPS Wynwood or take a taxi to the area, but then they feel lost, walking around, uncertain as to what they are viewing, and is there more, and where?” Says Susana Baker. “The saddest thing for me is that the visitors leave Wynwood without the full experience, story and the rich history of the area, including trivia facts of the murals and the artists. This is what the Art Experience Tourators will deliver to visitors; the total panoramic picture of Wynwood, which is filled with great history, amazing street art and galleries. The tours can be done in Russian, Portuguese, French, Chinese and Spanish.
