Bakehouse Art Complex Reunion Exhibition
On Friday, February 13, 2015, The Bakehouse Art Complex will honor its roots as a pioneering visual arts start-up in Wynwood and welcome the community to celebrate the opening of its landmark “Reunion” exhibition. This exhibition pays tribute to the artistic vision that created one of Miami’s oldest and most venerated cultural hubs twenty-nine years ago and the subsequent work that this vision made possible.
Opening its doors in 1987 in the Art Deco American Bakeries Company building, the Bakehouse was founded in 1985 by a group of artists who lost space in Coconut Grove and needed to relocate. These founding artists repurposed the industrial facility into working artist studios and galleries, ensuring a permanent venue for local artists to explore their creativity and hone their artistry.
