What began in 1963 as a clothesline art show featuring a handful of artists is now South Florida’s most successful arts festival, attracting an estimated 120,000 people to the winding streets of Coconut Grove during President’s Day weekend. The works of 360 internationally recognized artists are selected from nearly 1,300 applicants. Jurors evaluate the artist’s work and displays to select participants in such categories as mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking and drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry and metalwork, sculpture and wood.
