that separates happy people from the other people:

the feeling that you’re a practical item,

with a use, like a sweater or a socket wrench.”

‘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.’

ann arbor art fair – july 1978

it began in 1960 

when

 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,

bargaining, excitement.

music, children’s activities,

and always, always

lots of surprises. 

“the art world is filled with vibrancy.”
