These creative folks travel from 43 states and many foreign countries to share their work with us.
Commemorative posters and T-shirts, featuring the work of Ellen Negley, are available for purchase at the festival. Joining ArtFest Fort Myers from West Palm Beach, Florida, she created Fort Myers
Flavor to “capture” the downtown riverfront in her distinctive style.
New in 2019, ArtFest Fort Myers is harnessing the power of art to increase awareness and challenge behavior to inspire the recycle, re-use and upcycling movement, and to conserve our natural resources. We Are Overflowing, a sculpture created from re-purposed, discarded and cast-off materials, will spark your imagination and, perhaps, begin a conversation about “rethinking waste.”
Take the entire family to this annual free outdoor festival. View the high school students’ work and prepare to be astonished as they create large street paintings in the Chalk Block.
