Since 1953. Join us for Miami’s oldest juried art festival. This festival gives young artists a chance to meet the buying public. The Festival of Art became an annual project and is now a juried show with over 220 participating artists in 10 different mediums on the grounds of the University of Miami. It is recognized as one of the leading art shows in the country and attracts acclaimed artists from all over the world. In 2002 Beaux Arts added the Student Artist Showcase (SAS) to the Festival of Art event weekend. Middle school and high school aged students from both public and private schools enter their works of art to a juried art contest. Over 350 art pieces are judged. The finalists’ and winners’ works of art are exhibited at the Lowe Art Museum during the Festival of Art weekend and a reception is held in their honor. Cash prizes are awarded to winners in five art categories. One student is honored with the Best in Show award. Also featuring live entertainment and delicious food.
