We inspire, engage and connect humanity!
The Fountainhead, founded in 2008 by collectors Dan and Kathryn Mikesell, mission is to enhance the lives and careers of artists, to infuse Miami's growing art and cultural community with artistic inspiration from around the world, collaborate with our local institutions, non-profits and businesses to support our city's growth, build a global family that transcends all borders and continues to give back, and cultivate new audiences for the arts through intimate engagements, education and unique experiences.

The Fountainhead Residency
The Fountainhead Residency brings artists from around the world to live and work in Miami for up to two months. We host 3-4 artists at a time and between 30-40 artists per year. To date over 300 artists from 36 countries have taken part in the residency.
Held at The Residency monthly, Open Houses are a time when current resident artists open their studios and invite the public to experience their work, learn about their practice and build connections. It's an intimate venue to meet people from our community that share a common interest and values and engage in a dialog that only the arts can inspire.
The Fountainhead Studios
The Fountainhead Studios provides Miami-based artists with affordable, flexible, and safe working studio space. There are currently more than 30 artists working in every medium: painting, photography, sculpture, video, performance, and installation.
Twice a year we open The Fountainhead Studios to the public. This is a rare opportunity to inside more than 30 artists studios. Artists are eager to answer your questions, share stories of what inspires them and foster relationships in the community.
Miami Art Tours
At least four times a year, we'll take to the streets to visit galleries, nonprofits and artists' studios. We take pride in our community and we want to be your connector! Each month we'll visit different locations and introduce you to the incredible people that make Miami unique.
