BAKING HISTORY: BAC’s LEGACY AND FUTURE
Thirty Years after the Ribbon Cutting
On February 1, 1987 a group of artists and art enthusiasts cut the ribbon to mark a new era for American Bakeries Company Art Deco era facility as it was officially converted from industrial bakery to art complex. As a place to work and exhibit for thousands of local, national and international artists over the last three decades, this place has played a very important role in many creatives’ careers and stands tall as a pioneer for the arts in Wynwood.
As we commemorate the Bakehouse’s 30th anniversary, current alongside former artists and directors will assemble on this panel to provide personal and historical highlights including unique experiences, memories and the inevitable challenges of “toughing it out” as a nonprofit, day after day. A particular focus will be placed BAC’s engagement with the community and with public art since its inception.
