In addition to our artist residency and commissioned exhibitions, we inspire curiosity in new art and the exchange of new ideas through free public programs and community collaborations.
As a resource for artists, we provide incubator grants to Miami-based artists who seek to create socially-engaged projects in non-traditional venues and provide local artists with professional development resources, workshops and temporary r+d space to incubate creative careers.
Practice + Process: Artists reveal their creative process during this intimate series of behind-the-scenes discussions.
Talks (co-presented with ArtCenter South Florida): Talks brings top curators to Miami six times a year to discuss their vision, practice, and the art and artists that shaped their careers.
Locust Art Builders (LAB) Summer Art Intensive for Teens: Every summer Locust Projects turns its space over to 25 teens from across the county to learn how to build an exhibition from scratch.
WaveMaker: Part of a national network of Andy Warhol Foundation re-granting programs providing up to $60,000 in funding a year, awarded directly to artists for non-commercial, non-institutional projects that are accessible to the public.
LegalLink: Program providing free and low cost legal services, pro bono attorney referrals, and professional development to artists in Florida.
R+D Mobile Studio: A new initiative launched in 2017, R+D / Mobile Studio offers artists space and time to develop ideas for new projects and conven conversations and collaborations that inform new directions.
