The Bird Road Art District was originally an industrial area by the railroad tracks, the Bird Road Art District began attracting artists in the 1980s; slowly rows of slanted warehouses were converted into individual artist studios and soon the artists began organizing open studios inviting the public to view their artwork. By the year 2000, the area was officially designated an art district by Miami-Dade County.
Today the Bird Road Art District continues to attract creative types and is the home to a thriving community of more than 30 artists and an up and coming art scene, featuring a broad range of contemporary, emerging and established artists working in a variety of mediums as well as a mix of art schools, alternative spaces, a live theater group called Akuara Teatro and Speak Fridays!, a stage for spoken word that happens every Friday night.
