To qualify for Festival of the Masters, artists must have earned a primary award in a juried art festival within the last three years. Prospective exhibitors submit award verification and samples of their art to a jury of art experts who select the participants. This process ensures that visitors to the Festival will be treated to one of the finest collections of art in the nation.
Sculpture, jewelry, painting, photography, glass, and digital art are just some of the art genres showcased at this year's event. Street painters from the Central Florida Chalk Artists Association will decorate some 6,000 square feet of sidewalk with unique drawings. Youngsters can take in the fun with live music, face painting and interactive kid's zones.
Festival hours are 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. each day of the festival. Admission and parking are complimentary. Visit http://disneyworld.com/artfestival or call 407/824-4321for more information.
