One of the most popular art events on the West Coast, the Spring Beverly Hills Art Show was held on May 21 & 22, 2022 at Beverly Gardens Park, where three blocks of Santa Monica Boulevard, from Canon Drive to Rexford Drive, was brimming with works from 150 artists nationwide. All the arts and crafts were original, ranging from traditional to contemporary, in a variety of mediums, everything from sculpture, watercolor and photography to ceramics, glass and jewelry.
The Spring Beverly Hills Art Show featured a booth presented by the Next Beverly Hills Committee in partnership with the Arts & Culture and Human Relations Commissions. It was the third installation in the series Visions of the Future, and featured the work of Artem Shestakov, who captured aerial photos over Beverly Hills by drone in 2021, capturing iconic images from an entirely new perspective.
Artem Shestakov is an Ukrainian photographer and artist, best known worldwide for his nature and landscape images. He is an acclaimed landscape photographer named as one of the most influential photographers in 2020, who now resides in the United States.
The exhibition was curated by Kipton Cronkite, the Art Subcommittee Chair for Next Beverly Hills, who also worked with Community Services on Shestakov’s donation of one of the drone photographs which will become part of the Beverly Hills City’s Civic Collection.
