From miles around they gather
each summer, the artist/mer-
chants and the spectator/shop-
pers. The event is actually a
series of street art fairs which
take place simultaneously
around the city.

By ADRIENNE LYONS
After winter term students head
home in April, Ann Arbor is generally a
quiet town through the early summer
months. But the evolution begins in the
middle of July: flimsy wooden struc-
tures are erected in the middle of
streets, artists-some great, most
mediocre, and some really bad-ft- up
shop, and hordes of people arrive to
peruse the offerings.
The event, of course, is the famous
Ann Arbor Art Fair, which attracts

Hordes invade in July
for four-day event

the Mayor's Art Fair Committee, said
Guild Director Celeste Melis. "The city
is very supportive," Melis said. "The
University is very cooperative, too."
In addition to the paintings, pottery,
and other assorted works, the fair
provides the visitors with entertain-
ment. Artists' demonstrations abound
while diversions for children are com-
monplace. Diversions are also provided
on the Graceful Arch, a stage construe-
ted by architecture students in front of
the Physics and Astronomy Building.

more than a thousand artists who show
their stuff to more than 300,000 art
aficionados.
Actually, the fair is not a single fair,
but rather a conglomeration of three
separate events-sponsored by three
organizations and held simultaneously
at locations throughout the city.
THE ARTISTS and Craftsmen Guild,
which has participated in the event for.
nine years, locates its portion of the fair
both on East University Street on cam-
pus and on Main Street downtown.
The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is

located each July on East and South
University streets. A fair participant
since 1960, the Ann Arbor Street Art
Fair features both professional artists
and student artists.
The third organization is the State
Street Area Association, which locates
its artists on South State, Maynard, and
East Liberty Streets. Involved in the
art fair for 11 years, the group is spon-
sored by the State Street Area Mer-
chants.
The fair is organized each year by the
above three groups in conjunction with

some time getting there, as well, if
you're without a car). There are four
theaters, all of them clean and quite
pleasant since they stopped flashing
that nauseating light-blue-and-pink
kaleidoscope artwork on the screens
between showings. (Now, they have ads
for Bulova watches.)
The best thing about Briarwood is the
discounts. Their shows run all day,
from 10:30 a.m. to midnight, and all
showings before 1:30 in the afternoon
Cost a mere $1.50. (Regular price is
$2.50 with a student ID.) The mall is
also continuing last year's successful
"experiment: midnight shows. Taking
its cue from the blossoming craze for
cult films, Briarwood started having
weekend midnighters of The Rocky
Horror Picture Show, and it turned out
that the mall audiences threw more
riee and toast, sprayed more rain, and
yelled "Asshole! !" at Barry Bostwick
more fervently than even the crowds on
capipus. Since then, Briarwood has
kepts on Rocky Horro, and added regu-
lar screenings of other cult items and
the current releases it shows during the
daytime hours. Beware of only one
thing: the crowds. These theaters
aren't large, and have an annoying
habit of selling out just as you approach
the ticket counter.
