While the summer in Ann Arbor -
is usually calm and uncrowded, the
city is transformed for four days in
late July. The streets teem with
more than 500,000 people who come
from all over the nation to see the
exhibitions by more than 1,000
artists during the Ann Arbor Art
Fairs.
Replacing the tepid, slow mood
is a feeling of excitement as booths
are erected during the early morn-
ing, restaurants and shops move
their merchandise into the streets,
and families replace students on the
Diag for a picnic or an afternoon
snooze. Many students who spend
summers away from the stress of
school return for the exhibits, par-
ties and excitement. Cameras click,
adults browse while children play.
and exhibitors smile as their art is
appreciated or - better yet - pur-
chased by admirers.
Of course there are some down-
sides. Parking is impossible, and cars
of often ticketed or even towed.
Individuals who love the peace of
Ann Arbor summers flee the city.
Garbage from vendors abounds for
four days until the end of the fairs.
But the Ann Arbor Art Fairs are an

important part of the city's econ-
omy and reputation for being an
leading cultural community.
Although usually thought of as
one fair, there are actually three sep-
arate fairs: The Ann Arbor Street
Fair on South University, East
University and Church street; the
State Street Area Art Fair on
Liberty, Maynard, Thompson,
Williams and North University;
and the Summer Art Fair on Main
Street. While there is some compe-
tition between fairs, it is minor and
unfelt by observers.
Because of mild weather, large
crowds and good business, the art
fairs were regarded as a success by
many this year. "This is the biggest
show in the country and probably
the most famous," said Texan
Charlene Sainsott, wife of jewelry
exhibitor Craig Sainsott. "It's defi-
nitely the best."
