Gifford Lane Art Stroll
Sunday, March 18th from 12 noon to five p.m.
Gifford Lane between Oak and Day Avenues (3200 block).
Coconut Grove, FL
Itâ€™s free. Itâ€™s fun. Itâ€™s the Grove the way the Grove once was.
The fourteenth annual Gifford Lane Art Stroll will take place on Sunday, March 18th from 12 noon to five p.m.
Itâ€™s the Groveâ€™s other art festival.
You will find it in Coconut Grove near the Kirk Munroe tennis courts, rolled out along one sleepy little block of Gifford Lane between Oak and Day Avenues (3200 block).
The Coconut Grove event features work by more than seventy artists positioned along the normally quiet little lane on fences, in front yards, on clotheslines, in trees, and on ladders. Here you will find some of the finest artists in the region up close and personal.
The truth about the Gifford Lane Art Stroll is that it is attended by thousands of people each year. The date changes every year. Almost the only way you are going to hear about the Gifford Lane Art Stroll is by word of mouthâ€”it is like being personally invited to the party.
The Art Stroll gives away all of the profit taken in from the sale of cucumber punch, broiled burgers, hot dogs, grilled shrimp, wonderful ribs and, of course, tons of art. Over the years, the Stroll has donated more than $40,000 to two Grove charities– the St. Stephenâ€™s AIDS Ministry and the St. Albanâ€™s Child Enrichment Center in the Grove Village West.
Sculpture, portraits, sea and landscapes, tile mosaics, large abstract paintings, photography, mixed media, jewelry, and several art forms that as yet have no name will be displayed along the shady lane in the laid back tropical setting.
The art. The vibe. The cucumbers. Rock and roll. The blues.
