"The Boardwalk Art Show remains one of the few outdoor shows which features only fine art", OC Arts Center Executive Director Rosalyn Lifshin said.  "We host artists who have participated in the show for decades and we accept new artists each year.  Artists from the entire East Coast enjoy one of the Ocean City Boardwalk's busiest weekends with hundreds of thousands of visitors.  In addition, art lovers are able to purchase work at an affordable cost."
