    More than 200 award winning artists showcasing their fine art and quality craft will transform the magnificent path-lined plaza of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden – home of the BNP Paribas Tournament -- into a spectacular festival experience. Indian Wells is conveniently located in the heart of the Southern California -- Palm Springs/Desert Resort communities.

    The Indian Wells Arts Festival celebrates its 11th year and is ranked one of the 100 Best Fine Art Shows in the country (2011, 2010, 2009) by Sunshine Artist magazine; and voted 2009 Best of the Best Art Festivals by readers of Palm Springs Life magazine.

    The Indian Wells Arts Festival is designed to create a festive art marketplace experience for both the collector and first-time buyer -- as well as to host community celebration. You don’t need to be an art aficionado to enjoy the Indian Wells Arts Festival. The creative synergy of working artists, local sponsors, exhibitors and non-profit partners creates a color-filled artisan village vibrant with activity.

    Selected by jury process, artists are on hand to explain and demonstrate the techniques that created hundreds of pieces of one-of-a-kind artwork available for purchase. Offerings include painting, drawing, ceramics, glass, photography, sculpture, jewelry, apparel and hand-crafted wares.

    Everyone loves to watch the on-site demonstrations including glass blowing, painting, weaving, large scale stone sculpturing, larger-than-life mural painting, sand sculpture, wood carving and pottery throwing. With a celebrated reputation for its quality and wide variety of fine art and quality craft, artists travel from throughout the country to participate.

    A Gourmet Market Place offers gourmet specialties, while sidewalk chalk drawing, children’s activities, wine tasting, live musical entertainment and refreshment are ongoing throughout the day. “Sunday Eggs + Champagne in the Garden” brunch menu is available until noon.
