"Engaging with artists and art is our gift we want to share with you"

Founded in 2008 by Kathryn and Dan Mikesell, and located in Miami, The Fountainhead is a 501(c)(3) that serves as a catalyst for growth in the professional careers of artists and cultivates new audiences for the visual arts. This is accomplished through The Fountainhead Residency, an international artists’ residency; The Fountainhead Studios a studio complex providing raw work space and a community for local artists and hosting events and tours bringing diverse communities together through art and unique experiences. Each month we host at least two free public events.


The Fountainhead Residency infuses Miami with artistic talent from around the world. Artists are invited to live and work in Miami for one month. The Residency host 3-4 artists each month and between 30-40 artists per year.  To date over 370 artists from 43 countries have taken part in the residency. 


The Fountainhead Studios provides Miami-based artists with affordable, flexible, and safe working studio space outside of the public eye.   More than just studio space we provide a community for a profession that is often solitary. Currently, there are more than 25 artists working in every medium.
