And lucky residents of Vita at Grove Isle can tap into this creative milieu all year long. But during the winter, when most of the country is battling snow and frigid temperatures, those who live in the luxe Coconut Grove homes for sale at Vita can indulge in one of the nation's top-tier art events — the Coconut Grove Arts Festival.
The al fresco Coconut Grove Arts Festival delights thousands of visitors each year. And 2023 was no exception, offering an abundance of art close to home in this artsy enclave. What began as a publicity stunt for a local theatrical production decades ago has evolved into a celebration of artistic expression that has become a must-visit happening.
In February, during the Presidents’ Day holiday weekend, artists from myriad disciplinesgathered as friends, families, and art lovers of Miami perused and purchased a remarkablevariety of works. Let's look back at this occasion that showcased the leading artists ofMiami and the world.

In its 59th year, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival proved to be an exuberant and thrilling three-day experience for artists and attendees alike. With Biscayne Bay as the setting, it's no wonder this gathering is, as the organizers claim, "one of the largest outdoor arts festivals in the nation." It's all about location, right?
Visitors to this three-day visual arts fete were treated to works of all sorts — photographs, sculpture, painting, and even wearable art from jewelry makers. And one could trust that the purveyors were the best of the best, as all sellers went through a vigorous adjudication before being selected for the festival roster.
Favorites this year included the stunning Pop Art collages of Rick Abrams whose work gives off an Andy Warhol vibe that is perfectly suited for those with an edgy sensibility. The dreamy abstracts of Soo Chang offered the ultimate conversation pieces for viewers to ponder and decipher. Even the kids could get in on the action at the Young Collectors’ Club, a designated area with donated art specifically for younger aficionados.
Walking through the rows and rows of stalls offered attendees a vibrant display of color and creativity. For those who needed a break, there was food from nearly 50 restaurants in the city, including a cooking demonstration from the team at Luna Rossa, and even some live music to break up the day of booth-hopping.
