Beaux Arts Festival of Art Still a Popular Draw
By UM News
The 64th annual event featured more than 220 fine art exhibitors.

The annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art has come a long way since it first debuted in 1952. Back then, local artists would hang their works on clotheslines in front of the University of Miami’s Lowe Art Museum—hence its original name, the Clothesline Sale. Today, booths are the preferred display areas for works ranging from sculptures and paintings to ceramics and watercolors. Thousands of visitors enjoyed such media on January 17 and 18, when the 64th edition of the festival took place at UM.
