Locust Projects is a non-profit art exhibition space located in Miami, Florida. The space was created in 1998 by three artists Westen Charles, COOPER and Elizabeth Withstandley. The space was created to serve as a place for contemporary artists to create site specific works outside of the commercial gallery system. Locust Projects was one of the first spaces to open in Miami's Wynwood area, which has since turned into a vibrant arts district. In 2000 the artist-run space became incorporated, formed a board of directors and in 2002 became an official not for profit 501.
Locust Projects moved from its original NW 23rd street location in 2009 to NE 38th Street in the Design District. Locust Projects is currently located in an area just north of Wynwood, in Miami's Design District at 3852 North Miami Ave.
