The fall Beverly Hills Art Show is back. It returns Oct. 16 – 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Beverly Gardens Park. This year’s show is more intimate and scaled down than in previous years. It will include 125 participating artists and gourmet food trucks on two blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard from Beverly Drive to Crescent Drive.
“We are excited to bring the Art Show back to Beverly Gardens Park this fall, but as we continue to monitor COVID-19 and the Delta variant, a smaller, more intimate event will allow us to manage the safety of our guests and staff,” said Brooke Putich, Community Services recreation supervisor and art show coordinator.
Now in its 48th year, the Beverly Hills Art Show was reinvented in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show took on a hybrid format in an effort to stay connected to the community and continue to offer the much-anticipated annual event that community members have come to expect and enjoy.
“We offered an online art gallery exhibiting the artwork of 240 artists who provided pieces for sale; we had virtual Zoom interviews and chats with artists; and we provided small-pod master-class workshops held at Greystone Mansion & Gardens,” said Putich. “While live events were temporarily canceled to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we knew somehow the show must go on and we didn’t want to lose our Art Show followers so that when we did come back, they would still be with us, and we can’t wait to see everyone in person next month.”
In addition to the 125 artist displays, guests will be able to enjoy food and beverages from several gastro-worthy food trucks.
The free show is produced by the City of Beverly Hills Community Services Department. Parking is available in city lots just south of Santa Monica Boulevard, adjacent to the show site. For more information, visit www.beverlyhills.org/artshow or call 310.285.6836.
