The executive director of Wynwood’s Bakehouse Art Complex will retire at the end of the June.
Arlys W. Raymond has been with the 26-year-old organization, which is located at 561 NW 32nd St., Miami, since 2007.
In a press release, she was credited with overseeing almost $1 million in capital improvements to the facility, which includes 70 studios and other spaces. She was also lauded for raising the profile of the complex by instituting a professional jury system for artists.
The organization’s board of directors will choose the next executive director by the end of July after a formal search process.
