Coconut Grove Arts Festival

Michael Gard

Artist: Michael Gard

#31 While in Florida, my father and his girlfriend took me to the Coconut Grove Arts Festival in Miami. We spent several hours visiting, admiring, oohing and ahhing the works of over 380 artists showing their wares. I have never been to anything like this before. The quality of the pieces was simply exquisite.

Many of the artists prefer that people do not take photographs, but I did take photos of a few who did not post a sign asking people not to take photos. I did not catch the names of all of the artists, but if you find yourself with a bit of time on your hands and love art, you will find a list of all of the artists and their websites here. I urge you to check out these artists, as they all do beautiful work that inspires the soul to both live a creative life and to work hard to make money to buy their stuff! 🙂
