58th Annual Holtz Childrenâ€™s Hospital Beaux Arts Festival of Art – January 10-11, 2009
The 58th Annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art will take place Saturday, January 10th and Sunday, January 11th, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the beautiful grounds of the University of Miami campus located in Coral Gables.
Beaux Arts Festival of Art is proud to be Miami’s oldest juried fine art show, featuring more than 250 artists from across our country. Patrons can enjoy and purchase original art from top quality artists. The 11 mediums of artwork displayed include ceramics, fiber, glass graphics & drawing, jewelry, mixed media, oil & acrylics, photography, sculpture & 3D, watercolor and wood. $20,000 in cash awards will be presented.
This family-friendly event also provides entertainment for all ages, food of many cultures, and an Art Park for children 5-12 years old, allowing them to create their own arts and crafts while parents stroll the Festival. $10/hr per child for the Art Park.
Our yearly Beaux Arts Festival of Art brings the community together for a lovely weekend as well as allows Beaux Arts to support various art endeavors throughout the year. Aligned with the Festival is a Student Artist Showcase which allows talented middle and high school student artists the opportunity to compete for top recognition. Because the Festival is run entirely by dedicated volunteers, the money raised is used to provide museum field trips to underprivileged elementary school students as well as to enhance and maintain the collections of, and to assist with expansion of, the Lowe Art Museum.
