— Downtown Naples on March 24th and 25th welcomed the 24th annual Festival Of The Arts Exhibition. 5th Avenue was closed to all vehicle traffic from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day to accommodate the event.

There was something for everyone is an understatement, thousands of works in every given medium was available. Photography, oil and water paintings, sculptures, woodworks, reliefs, jewelry and other multimedia format works were presented.

The event was hosted by The Von Liebig Art Center and Greater Naples Chamber Of Commerce. Additional sponsor include: Fifth Third Bank, LITE 93.7, Sunny 106, Comcast, Naples Daily News, Costco, The News Press Media Group and other media and business outlets. The Von Liebig Art Center is located at 585 Park Street and visitors are encouraged to take a walk through.

In addition to the visual and musical delights of the day patrons had the opportunity to enjoy the old Naples entertainment and food attractions, 5th Avenue South, 10th Street Design District, 3rd Street South, and The Gordon Riverfront among the many available activities. Naples truly put on its best for this year’s Downtown Naples Festival Of The Arts.
