Hosted by the City of Miami Beach and produced by award-winning festival promoter Howard Alan Events the Festival of Arts & Crafts will transform Ocean Terrace into a gallery style outdoor art extravaganza featuring the finest work of 200 of the nation's leading artists and crafters including top local talent from throughout South Florida. This year the event will include a craft fair showcasing a wide array of unique and affordable handmade items.
The artists and crafters, juried by an independent panel of expert judges, are hand-selected from hundreds of applicants based on quality and diversity. All of their artwork is original and handmade in America.
The 37th Annual Miami Beach Festival of the Arts & Crafts makes the arts accessible to a broad audience. Prices range from as little as $15 to $25,000 metal sculptures. The event appeals to family and friends as a free and fun weekend activity, as well as serious art buyers looking to add to their collections.
All artists and crafters will be on site for the duration of the show, available to discuss their art and inspiration. "The art show is a great way to explore the work of many different artists and crafters in one setting," says festival promoter Howard Alan. "You have the opportunity to actually meet and connect with the artist before making a purchase, which makes the investment much more meaningful and personal."
