Our Mission

The Bakehouse Art Complex, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational institution, is Miami’s incubator for artistic creativity in South Florida. Our mission is to enable and encourage artistic creativity through diversity and collaboration by:

  • providing affordable studio spaces, exhibition opportunities, educational and artist advancement programming, and common work spaces for juried emerging and mid-career artists
  • serving as a cultural hub, providing a venue for exhibition, education, and critical thought in Miami's historic Art Deco bakery facility

Since its inception, the Bakehouse Art Complex has provided emerging and mid-career artists with the opportunity to creatively explore and develop their artistic endeavors. Open 7 days per week, the Bakehouse is a free, unique, engaging place where you can experience contemporary art in-process. Unlike a museum or gallery, at the Bakehouse, you can meet and catch a rare glimpse into the creative world of our culturally diverse and talented community of over 60 contemporary artists representing more than 16 countries and working in every imaginable art form.

This working artist community environment naturally facilitates creative exchange - the opportunity for artists to work, learn from, inspire, and encourage each other. This access to working facilities and skilled creative peers is the top reason artists choose the Bakehouse. Here, surrounded by 65 studios, two galleries, a project room, classroom, print room, photo lab, ceramic kiln area, woodworking and welding areas, the extensive 2.3-acre facility, artists can easily discover, experiment, cross over or integrate new media into their work.

The Bakehouse also invites non-resident local artists and members of the public to take part in this creative community. With a variety of programs such as monthly exhibition openings and open studios, educational and cultural programming for artists, students, adults, and families, the Bakehouse is a resource for South Florida that welcomes and involves patrons into the contemporary and culturally enriching world of the visual arts.

Experience art - become a collector - take a class - host an event - there are so many ways to participate!
