The city of Beverly Hills and its Community Services Department will celebrate 50 years of artistic excellence and community engagement in the Fall Art Show on Oct. 21 and 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Beverly Gardens Park.
Since its inception, the Beverly Hills Art Show has grown from a one-day show attracting a few dozen artists and a small gathering to an all-encompassing, mutiday festival featuring 230 artists, artists’ demonstrations, arts and crafts workshops in the Children’s Area provided by Self-Help Graphics, live musical entertainment, food and more. The event attracts nearly 40,000 people from all over the world.
“Our amazing Affaire in the Garden—the Beverly Hills Art Show—is back with another exceptional list of participating artists drawn from all over the world,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Dr. Julian Gold. “This special 50th Anniversary Fall Edition promises to be an unforgettable celebration of culture and arts. We invite everyone to stop by and we look forward to seeing you there.”
The fall show will feature artwork in painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, drawing, watercolor, traditional printmaking, photography, jewelry and more along four blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard from Rodeo Drive to Rexford Drive. The show also features juried art show award winners in 15 categories, including Best in Show and the Gil Borgos Award, named after an artist who convinced Beverly Hills to hold an arts and crafts fair 50 years ago. In addition, Gold will have the distinct honor of selecting a piece of art for the city, known as the Mayor’s Purchase Award.
The 2023 fall sponsors and partners are the Los Angeles Art Association, NoHo Arts District, LAArt Party, Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Blank Beverage, SALT Catering, Beverly Hills Conference and Visitors Bureau, Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce, Beverly Hills Historical Society and Beverly Hills Unified School District.
