There will also be free interactive lectures (with cost of admission) during which visitors can create their own pieces of art.

The event will be held in a new 65,000-square-foot space that features its own full-service restaurant, lecture hall and sculpture garden.

Tickets for one-day passes to Art Boca Raton are about $20, while multi-passes are about $25.

"You get a huge amount for a very small ticket price. We are inviting all the students and faculty at FAU for free because we really want them to come," event representative Dindy Yokel​ said. "We’re really about having people come, since it's the first year the [fair] is happening."

The fair will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., but the fun doesn’t have to end then. After Dark events will be held at the Boca Museum of Art, where there will be pop-up exhibitions and nightly festivities with music, snacks and drinks.
