Center for the Fine Arts
Location and Access
The Center for the Fine Arts was founded to
serve South Floridians and tourists-not by
collecting, preserving or acquiring works of art-
but by initiating and presenting exhibitions of art
and design of the highest quality and broadest
Funding comes from a working partnership of our
public and private sectors. Established in 1978 by
the Board of County Commissioners as an
agency of Metro-Dade County, the Center will be
maintained by county funds; exhibitions will be
financed through corporate sponsorship, private
philanthropy, tourist tax appropriations, and
state and federal grants.
The Center for the Fine Arts is located west of
the Dade County Courthouse, between Flagler
Street and North West First Street.
