To ensure longevity for the careers of local artists through a program that will provide permanent affordable work space, housing and legal counseling

The Studio Initiative will provide 13 affordable live/work spaces for artists in Wynwood. The selection process for awarding them will be highly competitive, aiming to bring together promising artists who will collaborate in ways only a residential model can offer. A 14th studio will be reserved for visiting curators and scholars who will mentor the artists and critique their work. The building also will house LegalArt, which will continue to offer legal aid and provide its signature professional development series for artists on marketing, business development and other topics. The unique center will be a place where artists from all over South Florida will seek guidance, resources and a greater sense of community with their peers.
