COCONUT GROVE (January 14, 2011) - The Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove hosted the 48th Coconut Grove Art Festival Poster unveiling event today. This year’s poster, by artist and conservationist Guy Harvey, features an undersea scene of marine life.
This year’s Coconut Grove Arts Festival will be hosted from February 19-21, 2011. The Festival is held annually in the streets of Coconut Grove, a charming village within the city of Miami. The Festival is located just south of downtown Miami, overlooking beautiful Biscayne Bay and adjacent to the hotel. Admission is $10 per person per day and benefits the Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association.
The Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove features original art by many of the most vital and well-respected artists of our time. Museum-quality works by both emerging and established artists reflect each individual artist’s vision, while illuminating some of the most significant movements of contemporary art including Conceptional, Minimal and Pop Art. The portion of the collection housed at Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove includes pieces by Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenberg, Jan Dibbets, Lynne Golub Gelfman, Carl Palazzolo and others. The works adorn the hotel’s public areas and guest rooms and many among them were specifically commissioned for the hotel’s collection. Overnight hotel room rates begin at $279 per night.

A signature event on the South Florida cultural calendar, the Festival offers visitors the opportunity to meet and talk with exhibiting artists, sample fine cuisine, enjoy live entertainment, take a walk through history, and, for the kids, create their own works of art.
