Beaux Arts Festival of Art Returns to the University of Miami Campus

The 72nd annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art will return to the University of Miami campus on Jan. 14 and Jan. 15. Known as one of South Florida’s leading art shows, the event brings more than 175 juried fine art exhibitors from all over the country seeking to capture more than $20,000 in prizes. 

“We’re thrilled to continue this tradition in our 72nd year showcasing incredible artwork in our community by internationally-recognized artists,” Monica Sanchez says, Beaux Arts President 2022-2023. “We look forward to welcoming visitors from South Florida and beyond.” 

The two-day outdoor festival is expected to draw more than 20,000 visitors from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in front of the Watsco Center. Admission to the show is free courtesy of presenting sponsor Ussery Automotive Group/Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay. 

The festival will offer museum-quality fine art, live music, interactive art experiences for children and adults and a marketplace featuring local vendors and dining. The 2023 festival will feature a beer and wine garden presented by Bay 13 Brewery & Kitchen, which will offer local brews and wines for visitors. The festival will also feature a Community Art Tent sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, where patrons of all ages can create their own art. Returning features include The Family Entertainment Zone, sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and The Children’s Art Park, hosted by TD Bank. 

Proceeds from the festival benefit the University of Miami’s Lowe Art Museum and Beaux Arts’ educational programs. For seven decades, Beaux Arts has introduced children from underserved communities to the art world and encouraged art awareness and advancement through the support of the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. 

Beaux Arts was founded in 1952 by a small group of women, which has grown to an organization of nearly 100 active members and 350 associates to increase art appreciation in the community and support the Lowe Art Museum. The festival continues to be 100% volunteer run and is co-chaired this year by Callie Buck, Jordan Kever and Chelsea Tombley.
