Located just off the Palmetto Expressway between Bird Road (SW 40 Street) and SW 48 Street, you will find a thriving community of more than thirty artists' studios, art galleries, art schools, a live theater group called Akuara Teatro and Speak!, a stage for spoken word that happens every Friday night.
The Bird Road Art District (BRAD), originally an industrial area by the railroad tracks, began attracting artists in the 1980s; rows of warehouses were converted into individual artist studios, exhibitions took place and the artists began organizing open houses and art walks inviting the public to view their artwork. By the year 2000, the area was officially designated as an art district by Miami-Dade County.
Today the Bird Road Art District continues to attract artists and is home to emerging and well established artists' studios working in a variety of media and disciplines as well as a mix of art schools, a quaint retail section and professional offices all blended to create one of Miami's more unique communities.
Some participating galleries include:
