(PRESS RELEASE)_WEST PALM BEACH, FL (November 24, 2020) – Thousands of fabulous works of art, from larger-than-life sculptures, to exquisite paintings, handcrafted fine jewelry, glassworks and more will soon line the refurbished cobblestones of Rosemary Square once more when the 10th Annual Downtown West Palm Beach Art Festival returns December 5 – 6. The popular artistic affair was rescheduled from its April date due to the global pandemic, and as a result, will be presented with changes, due to strict safety measures.
Safety measures in place for the socially-distanced, outdoor event include:
• All attendees are required to wear a mask while attending the Festival, with the exception of children aged 2 and under.
• Entrances and exits will be monitored for one-way traffic.
• Visitors should reserve a free time slot at ArtFestival.com.
• Social-distancing is required between artists and patrons, and patron groups.
• Patrons are asked to stay home if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19, awaiting test results for COVID-19, or show any symptoms of the virus.
• Guests are also asked to utilize hand-washing and sanitizing stations on a regular basis and avoid casual touching.
“We are so thrilled to be able to bring this magnificent art event to the residents and visitors of Palm Beach County at this time,” says producer, Howard Alan. “Being outdoors and having the ability to manage the number of visitors makes us uniquely positioned to bring a bit of the cultural season back to the area in a safe manner.”
“The artists and staff are grateful to return to beautiful Rosemary Square, and appreciate everyone’s cooperation in following the guidelines, reserving their free times through our website, and discovering some fabulous new art among our local and visiting fine artists,” says Alan.
Residents and visitors are invited to stroll amidst life-size sculptures, spectacular paintings, one-of-a-kind jewels, photography, ceramics and more from the local and national artists who are on site to discuss their inspirations and processes for each hand-made work.
