The 66th Annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art takes place on the grounds of the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida on January 14th and 15th, 2017. Each year, thousands of patrons visit the festival to view and to purchase original artwork from approximately 230 juried exhibitors. Cash awards totaling over $20,000 will be presented to juried artists across ten categories as well as to the winners of the Student Artist Showcase which features art from students all over Miami-Dade County. The Festival of Art is free to the public and offers live eclectic music, children's art experiences, fabulous dining options, and free admission all weekend to the Lowe Art Museum.
The Beaux Arts Festival of Art is run entirely by Beaux Arts Miami, a volunteer support organization of the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. The first festival, originally called the Clothesline Sale, was held in the spring of 1952 in order to give young artists a chance to meet the buying public. The festival became an annual project, and is now a juried show recognized as one of the leading art shows in the country. Proceeds from the Beaux Arts Festival of Art go to the Lowe Art Museum for the purposes of funding exhibitions, capital improvements, children's programming (including Art and School Camps and Hands On Community Outreach) as well as acquisitions for the museum's collection.
Beaux Arts is proud to host South Florida's oldest juried art festival, the Beaux Arts Fesitval of Art, on January 14th and 15th, 2017.
