Over 230 local, national and international artists will showcase their work in media that include painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, drawing, watercolor, traditional printmaking, photography, jewelry and more.

The Beverly Hills Art Show began 50 years ago as an “Affaire in the Garden” after artist and caricaturist, Gil Borgos, convinced then Deputy Director Michelle Marrell to start a very small “arts and crafts” fair on one block in Beverly Gardens Park. Today, it has grown to 230 artists spread across four blocks and has attracted over 40,000 people over the two-day weekend, making it one of the most beloved and long-standing community events in Beverly Hills.
“This year’s 50th Anniversary Art Show will be truly a special event,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Dr. Gold. “There’s no better place to experience immersive and innovative art than right here in our beautiful Beverly Gardens Park. We’ll be showcasing more artists than we ever have before, making this a golden anniversary event no one should miss.”
The 2023 spring sponsors and partners are: The Los Angeles Art Association, NoHo Arts District, LAArt Party, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Blank Beverage, SALT Catering, the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau, the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce, and the Beverly Hills Historical Society.
