Coconut Grove Arts Festival

From Feb 19 through 21, 2011.

altA South Florida tradition continues on Presidents’ Day weekend as the Coconut Grove Arts Festival will again transform the streets of Coconut Grove into an artists’ gallery. The 48th annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival will showcase the works of 360 internationally recognized artists along the scenic streets of Coconut Grove. The festival recently announced the list of artists selected to participate.

Artists from more than 35 U.S. states and Canada were among the 1,232 applicants who submitted samples in mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking & drawing, watercolor, claywork, glass, fiber, jewelry & metalwork, sculpture and wood. Applicants included 19 local artists from the Miami area and more than 100 from Florida.

“Our arts festival brings the most talented and creative artists from all over the world to Coconut Grove,” said Monty Trainer, president of the Arts Festival. “South Floridians have a great appreciation of the arts, and every year we are proud to welcome artists who exhibit for the first time.”

Complementing the visual arts on display is the popular Culinary Pavilion, which invites world-renowned chefs to prepare their famous dishes and explain their specialties. This year’s chefs will represent successful restaurants and hotels from South Florida, including some nationally recognized authors.

Earlier this year, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival was named one of the top three fine arts festivals in the nation by Sunshine Artist Magazine. The Arts Festival was voted one of the best fine art shows for the seventh year and remains the top fine art event in the history of the magazine’s 200 Best.

Festival hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Children 12 and under are free.
