Nothing says April like ARTbeat!

The Yuma Art Center once again plays host to the most eclectic event in Yuma, ARTbeat, the annual outdoor fine art exhibit and sale.

ARTbeat-5 delivers an outstanding mix of local and regional fine artists exhibiting their work on Main Street in Historic Downtown Yuma. This award- winning, street-level event is a juried, outdoor fine art exhibit of well-known and emerging local and regional artists working in a variety of artistic mediums and styles.

This free to the public event expands every year featuring artists such as Chris Tortorici. A long-time Yuma artist, Chris creates sublime, mystical sculp- ture and paintings. Chris said, “I do many shows and exhibits throughout the Southwest but I so look forward to ARTbeat. It’s great to be able to connect with my fellow ‘Yumans’, promote my art, and have a great time in downtown Yuma!”

ARTbeat-5 artists will exhibit works in ceramic, photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, and more. Last year ARTbeat-4 drew over 75 artists and 2,000 plus visitors to the historic down- town area.
