FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -

Part two of the Las Olas Art Fair opens this weekend in celebration of the event's 25th anniversary year.

Festival promoter Howard Alan Events has organized 250 artists from 30 states to display their masterpieces at the outdoor festival. Their work includes everything from paintings and sculptures to mixed media creations and handmade jewelry. 

Each artist was hand-selected by an independent panel of judges from hundreds of applicants. 

Art enthusiasts are invited to stroll along Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, between SE 6th and 11th Avenues, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There is no charge for admission and the public is invited to attend. 

Prices for art ranges from as little as $25 to as much as $30,000. 

Festival patrons can also register to win a one-of-a-kind sculpture valued at $2,800. "Stephanie on Las Olas" is an original handcrafted bronze and gold plate creation, made by award-winning artist Ancizar Marin. Marin will be on hand at the festival's Poster Booth to discuss his sculpture. 

Part one of the 2013 Las Olas Art Fair was held the weekend of January 5.
