63rd Beaux Arts Festival is this weekend

It's time for the 63rd annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art at the University of Miami campus. On Saturday and Sunday, January 18 and 19, enjoy art, music and of course food right on the campus grounds of the Lowe Art Museum. The festival is open from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Admission and parking are free.

The Beaux Arts Festival will have more than 230 artists.

Widely recognized as one of the region's most popular outdoor art exhibitions and a South Florida tradition, the festival attracts thousands of visitors annually and offers works in 10 mediums.

The festival will feature live music on the Main-stage, children's entertainment, including free art activities for children ages 4-12 in the "Miami Children's Hospital Art Park," and a variety of dining options, making this event ideal not just for art enthusiasts but for families as well.

In addition to artists selected by a panel of jurors, visitors will enjoy the popular "Student Artist Showcase," featuring 150 pieces from Miami-Dade middle and high school students, on display inside the Lowe Art Museum throughout the weekend.

The festival reaches beyond artists and visitors on the festival weekend. Funds raised from the festival help underwrite "Hands On!" - Beaux Arts' signature program for children from underserved schools. "Hands On!" introduces these Miami-Dade students to the world of art and museums via field trips to the museum. Additional funds raised are used for Lowe Art Museum exhibitions, improvements and acquisitions.

The festival was originally called the "Clothesline Sale," as Beaux Arts volunteers used clotheslines to display the works of local artists in front of the Lowe. Over 60 years later, the all volunteer-run, annual festival has evolved and is considered one of the top outdoor fine art shows in the country.

The festival is on the grounds of the Lowe Art Museum at 1301 Stanford Drive, Coral Gables.
