Ann Arbor Art Fair

The Ann Arbor Art Fair use to rank in the top 10 art show in the US. It has since slip to the bottom 100 but it is still a wonderful show to visit and is certainly the best show that Michigan has to offer.

I attended the Ann Arbor art Fair yesterday ,the opening day of the art show. I like to go the first day early because it is not so crowded and I can talk to the artist, many of them friends of mine that I just don't get to see much of.. The crowd was heavy at first. I was there for about an hour and had seen some of the best art in a show that I had ever seen at this show. It was over the top and got a big WOW from me,
The temperature had climbed to over 95 and I just couldn't take the heat any longer. I stop and got a cold beverage and went on for about another half hour made a few purchases.I wasn't alone in the leaving because of the heat the crowd had thinned to a trickle. I stock up on my Christmas gifts So many really quaint items to select from. I had only seen about half of the show when I decided to head for home ,I was feeling ill from the heat and decided to call it a day.

Bring an umbrella to help keep the sun off of you and go take a look; it is wonderful a wonderful art show with warn friend artist. If your time is limited or you think you couldn't see much of the show, here is a list of the   artist and their booth numbers so you make them your first stop.

I think we (Helen and I) went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair in the mid 90s. I can't remember if it was the AAAF for sure. It was so huge that we weren't able to walk through all of it (mostly me :)). It was awesome. I got my ceramic card holder there. I remember it was quite HOT!

Oh yes, I am sure you were at the Ann Arbor Art Fair. It is the largest in Michigan and really has some wonderful artist. They really have a nice mix of artist in the show, something for everyone.
