About Bakehouse Art Complex:
Since its inception, the Bakehouse Art Complex (BAC) has served as a creative incubator for more than a thousand emerging and mid-career artists. The Bakehouse offers more than just studio space. This dynamic artistic community is home to dozens of artists working side-by-side in every media imaginable in an environment where they share in each other’s creative processes and inspire, encourage and motivate one another.
The Bakehouse is also the perfect place to enjoy contemporary art in the making year-round, featuring 65 working artist studios, two galleries with monthly exhibition openings, classes, and working facilities, such as a fully functional print room, dark room, a woodworking area, welding room and ceramic kilns for artist use. Thanks to the generous support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, BAC will create a ceramics studio and South Florida’s first community-accessible fine arts metal casting foundry in 2015. These areas provide Resident and Associate artists with in-house facilities to develop or to experiment and integrate new media into their work.
Open free 7 days per week, the Bakehouse offers patrons a rare glimpse into the creative experience and an opportunity to interact directly with a diverse and talented community of over 60 contemporary artists. With monthly exhibition openings, cultural and community events, classes for adults and children, and a soon-to-be-launched monthly Green and Art market, the BAC is not only a creative center, but also a vibrant community hub serving its artists, patrons, art buyers, and the South Florida community.

Miami DWNTWN Art Days
September 19-21, All Day
dwntwnartdays Downtown Miami

Art Days is designed to bring together and promote the cultural community, in addition to facilitating and incentivizing art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In its third year, Art Days, supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), continues to provide free inspiring art activities across the Downtown cultural landscape. Working in partnership with a variety of arts and culture institutions, organizations and artists, Art Days is a three-day cultural exploration that incorporates countless free events and exhibitions for the community to experience and enjoy. Art Days offers something for everyone from family activities, panel discussions, international exhibitions, bike tours, walking tours and so much more!

Art Days is comprised of three components:
The Hub
located at MCAD, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132
The “hub” is the epicenter for information on Art Days. In 2013 over 130 events took place around Downtown Miami, so it’s worthwhile to take a moment and set an itinerary to make the most out of the weekend!
The hub is the place to…
…find someone to help you navigate through the vast amount of things to do.
…start most walking and bike tours.
…be creative and paint your own unique t-shirt.
…hang out and connect with your friends on social media.
…find people to welcome you to Downtown Miami.

The Fringe
The “Fringe” is a set of curated activations of Downtown Miami in the form of visual and performance art projects. The visual art projects are commissioned, site-specific public art installations, curated by a specialist contemporary art curator Amanda Sanfilippo, and located within a one-mile radius around the Hub for easy walkability. This year’s Fringe has been initiated in partnership with Miami Dade County’s Art in Public Places.

The Events
Throughout the three day weekend, over 60 different art organizations, culture organizations, non-profits and artists activate their spaces with exhibitions, performances, cocktails meet and greet, art talks, panels and more. New for 2014 is an increased family friendly programming and children activities to accommodate the growing number of families living in Downtown.
Realizing the lack of performing arts in last year’s mix of events, the Miami DDA, in collaboration with the Olympia Theatre, is debuting a series of performance pieces in public areas and venues all around Downtown
As a guideline, here is a schedule for the weekend:
Thursday: Media/VIP Preview of the Fringe and Art Days
Friday: School tours/ Exhibitions openings/ post -work cocktail activities
Saturday: Museum day; art tours and exhibitions
Sunday: Cultural activities/bike tours
