The 62nd annual Beaux Arts Festival of Art will bring more than 230 fine artists to the grounds of the Lowe Art Museum on the University of Miami campus during the weekend of January 19 and 20, 2013.

This year, artists hail from 30 states and abroad.

Admission and parking are free.

Proceeds benefit the Lowe Art Museum, which will be open to the public all weekend, and support bringing children from low-income schools on cultural field trips to the museum.

The festival will feature live music, children’s entertainment – including free art activities, such as watercolor painting projects, for children ages 4-12 in the “City National Bank Art Park” – as well as a variety of dining options, making this event ideal not just for art enthusiasts but for families as well.

Children who attend the festival will receive a copy of the organization’s signature children’s coloring book, honoring Beaux Arts’ 60th anniversary in 2011 and featuring important works from the Lowe’s world collections and a museum map for children.

Coloring books will be available at no cost at the “City National Bank Art Park,” in addition to City National Bank giveaways.
