About Bakehouse Art Complex


Bakehouse Art Complex envisions a world that supports and values artists and recognizes their ability to shape, reflect, and transform our world. A 501(c)(3) located in the Wynwood Norte neighborhood of Miami, our mission is to address the need for affordable live, live-work, and workspaces for artists in Miami’s urban core and provide opportunities for artists to engage with the broader community.


Founded in 1985 by artists and for artists in a former industrial Art Deco-era bakery, Bakehouse provides studio residencies, infrastructure, and community to enable the highest level of artistic creativity, development, and collaboration for the most promising talent. As one of Miami’s oldest and largest artist-serving organizations, Bakehouse provides approximately 100 artists with studios of varying sizes and access to two galleries, a classroom, print room, photography lab, ceramics facilities, and woodworking, and welding areas. These spaces allow artists to work, make, discover, learn, and share their practices and work with each other and the broader community.


Bakehouse is positioned for its next stage of development, seeking to play a more critical role in the collective efforts to build a strong and sustainable ecosystem in which artists and the arts can thrive. A plan is currently underway to redevelop our 2.3-acre campus to better serve the needs of Miami’s cultural community. This future project, now in the planning stages, will encompass the renovation of the main and former industrial bakery building and the addition of new cultural spaces and affordable live-work units for artists and other members of the community. Bakehouse hopes to become an important cultural anchor to the community in which it is embedded.
