Las Olas Art Fair
las olas artFor many residents of the middle of South Florida, the international glare of Art Basel Miami Beach still seems remote and otherworldly. The Las Olas Art Fair, on the other hand, feels like art of the people, by the people and for the people, which is why it always draws plenty of people to downtown Fort Lauderdale three times a year.
For many, it’s merely a perfect way to spend a day outdoors, but there’s no denying the variety of creative talent from around the country gathered at this event.
