Art fair: Brightening summer
with displays .on S. University

By DIANE LEVICt
Glass blowing, ceramics, jew-
elry, sculpture: they'll all be on
display at Ann Arbor's 13th
annual street art fair July 19-
22.
The Ann Arbor Street Art
Fair, held on S. University and
E. University, bordering the
University's campus, attracts
over 70,000 persons who come
to view and buy the works of
over 250 artists.
The artists, who have achiev-
ed national reputations for
their fine work, not only display
their art, but many demon-
strate their crafts right in their
booths.
Wood carving, acrylics, log
sculpture, water colera, spin-
ning, macrame and weaving,
enameling, and serigraphs will
all be on view at the fair.
Although the greatest num-
ber of artists and demonstrators
come from Michigan - many
from Ann Arbor itaelf-over 20
statesand Canadian provinces
will be represented.
In addition, the art form of
entertainment is a n o t h e r
highlight of each year's fair.
Such groups as the Civic Thea-
tre, Ann Arbor Council for the
Performing Arts, the Huron
Valley Achitects Association
and strolling performing groups
appear during the fair.
Most of the performances are
planned and held on a large
stage, but impromptu street
dances, strolling singers and

musical groups also add color to
the four-day show.
Other attractions include ex-
hibitions from the local Potters
Guild, Pioneer and Huron High
Schools, and senior citizens.
"When you get tired of look-
ing at the art," says art fair
director Richard Brunvand,
"you can sit back on the grass
and watch all the people pass.
There are as many varieties of
people as there are art works."
The children's activity area
is a high interest spot for fair-
goers. This large area is super-

vised during fair hours for
budding young artists to create
their own masterpieces.
Youngsters make their own
paints, use recycled paper,
wires, cardboard, metal stamp-
tugs, and other discarded ma-
terials to develop their artistry
in an environment - conscious
way.
The adult artists, however,
are accepted into the fair by a
committee, made up of at least
eight persons competent to
evaluate one or more categories
