Three decades ago, our founder, potter Ellie Schneiderman, sought affordable work spaces for our city’s visual artists. Today, Oolite Artscontinues Schneiderman’s mission, to, as she said, “help artists help themselves.”
We are both a community and a resource, providing artists with the free studio space, exhibition opportunities, direct support and programming they need to advance their careers.
We also offer programming to the surrounding neighborhood and the wider community to help them better understand, and create, contemporary art.

MIAMI BEACH CINEMATHEQUE
The Miami Beach Cinematheque is an HD art house built in 1927 by Carl Fisher. The Miami Beach Film Society worked to preserve this Art Deco gem and opened the cinematheque with the mission of offering an alternative to the commercial cinema experience. The intimate cinema has stadium seating with black-and-white photographs of classic movie stars decorating the space. The environment feels almost as comfy and cozy as curling up to watch a movie in your living room. In addition to the screening room, there’s also a gallery, bookstore, library and café where you can purchase sophisticated snacks, wine and beer to enjoy during the movie. It screens critically acclaimed, first-run independent films, documentaries and foreign films. A premier venue during Miami’s many film festivals, including the Miami International Film Festival, it also works to bring limited-release films from prestigious international film festivals like Cannes to Miami’s silver screen.
