Beaux Arts Festival starts the local winter art scene

The local winter arts season starts this weekend with the beautiful Beaux Arts Festival of Art, which is back on Saturday and Sunday, January 14 and 15. It's right across the road, at the University of Miami. Then next month, our two favorites, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival and the St. Stephen's Arts Fair take over Coconut Grove from February 18-20, 2017.

The Beaux Arts Festival benefits the Lowe Art Museum on campus. Itl runs from 10 am to 5 pm each day. This is the area's oldest juried art show. Along with the art there is lots of food, drink and character.


 It winds around the lake, it's free to enter and there is free parking. The entrance is in front of the Lowe Art Museum at Stanford Drive off of Ponce de Leon Blvd. 

Beaux Arts was started in 1953 by 50 founding members under the direction of Anne Atkinson, then Assistant Director of the newly built Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery. The purpose of the group was to provide improvements, equipment and financial assistance to the Lowe Gallery, renamed Lowe Art Museum in 1968.


Today, the 125 Beaux Arts volunteers and 300 plus associate members work together throughout the year to execute events and to make a difference in the community through many special programs.

During the past 65 years, Beaux Arts has raised over $6 million, which places the organization in the highest donor category for the University of Miami, The Gables Society.
