The bird road ART district was originally an industrial area. In the '80S. The area around SW 72ND avenue and bird road was dotted with empty warehouses. The cheap rent attracted artists. Many of them recent transplants from ALL over latin america. They transformed the HUGE spaces into lofts where they lived. Worked. And exhibited their work. AS the community grew. SO DID the galleries. Frame shops. Antique dealers. And furniture design stores. In june 2000. The area was officially designated the bird road ART district by Miami dade county. And the streets were opened UP for studio tours and monthly ART WALKS. RECENTLY there's been a push for a resurgence of the district. Partly DUE to several newcomers eager to show their talents and Bring together visitors to this thriving community of artists WHO open their studios. ART galleries. Alternative spaces. ART schools.
