Oolite Arts

Oolite Arts

Located in the vibrant neighborhood of Little Haiti, Oolite Arts is a non-profit resource for the advancement of contemporary visual arts and culture in Miami. The organization was founded in 1984 and recently underwent a name change from ArtCenter/South Florida to one that resonates more with their vision. Like oolite, Miami’s strong porous bedrock formed by grains of coral, shells and organic elements, Oolite Arts seeks to fulfill the role of being the bedrock of contemporary visual arts in Miami, bringing together a community of artists, alumnae, curators and art lovers.

As a catalyst for South Florida’s arts community, Oolite Arts artist residency has provided opportunities for hundreds of emerging artists that include established creatives like Teresita Fernandez and Edouard Duval-Carrié. The organization also offers artists, in addition to studio space, exhibition opportunities, direct support, classes and programming to support their endeavors. Recent additions to its roster of programs include The Ellies, Miami’s Visual Arts Awards; a Cinematic Arts program and a lecture series with Locust Projects.

Besides being credited with the revitalization of Lincoln Road, Oolite Arts is recognized as a Major Cultural Institution by Miami-Dade County, a Miami Beach Anchor Institution by the Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council and a Knight Foundation Arts Challenge grantee.
