Warehouse 4726 exists as a working arts/studio space in The Bird Road Arts District in Miami. Operated by Jean Blackwell Font and Ignacio Font, both visual artists, with partnership from Rosie Gordon-Wallace, Founder and Director of Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator.
As members of the visual arts community here in Miami, we realize the power of the arts and collaboration; our goal is to support visual artists to mature and to think deeper through offering affordable studio space, artist exposure and development. We offer a diverse set of workshops and meetings as part of a community outreach effort in a neighborhood that has been quietly developing the arts community for decades.
Our workshops and meetings are geared towards artists and the needs of the artistic community. In the past two years we have held free workshops and meetings in website development, blogging, social media, grant application, artistic techniques and journaling. We have also hosted artists talks and community conversations (like My Miami Story by the Miami Foundation.) We recently held a conversation based on a podcast about creativity and diversity. This seasons calendar will feature a official Art21 screening and conversation, My Miami Story 2018 (our third year), we are participating in the Creative Capital Dinners Project, a special project of the Fridge Art Fair Miami 2018 and monthly open studio nights.
We also participate in events hosted by our partners at Warehouse 4726.
