A successful Artists Open by Fountainhead Arts
Aligned with Fountainhead’s mission to elevate the voices, visibility, and value of artists in our society and make their work accessible, Fountainhead presented Artists Open, a Miami Dade County-wide open studios event welcoming the public into over 200 artists studios.
Artists Open is designed to eliminate barriers of entry into the arts by inviting the public to engage with artists in their studios - a perspective of the artist’s practice that is rarely seen. This open studios event encourages locals to see artists as approachable and accessible, and facilitates a more intimate relationship between artists and local audiences. With many artist studios located in areas that lack significant cultural offerings, Artists Open ensures that people across Miami-Dade County can form bonds with the art-making that takes place right in their own backyard. Many of the works within artists’ studios will be available for sale, further cementing the program’s intent to make artists’ careers more sustainable.
