‘bad things do happen in the world,
like war, natural disasters, disease.
but out of those situations always arise
stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.’

for all who arise to do extraordinary things to help.

detroit city after the game still has a lot of life in it.
“this city is what it is because our citizens are what they are.”
ann arbor art fair – july 1978
it began in 1960
132 artists (99 of them local)
strung their artwork between parking meters
and locals came by
curious to see if artists
would really put their work on display in the street.
it now hosts over 1,000 artists and 500,000 + visitors
from near and far each year.
the ann arbor art fairs
(actually now a group of four)
will kick off today and take over the city
for what always promises to be four days
of creative display, talks with artists,
music, children’s activities,
and always, always
lots of surprises.
“the art world is filled with vibrancy.”
