Many of Ann Arbor's normal functions will come
to a halt this week when the annual art fairs roll into
town again, marking 38 years of an Ann Arbor sum-
Running today through Saturday, the three different
fairs will cover 24 blocks of Ann Arbor streets, from
downtown to the University campus. They bring with
them more than 1,000 visual artists, numerous perfor-
mance artists, merchants and food vendors.
Art-fair organizers anticipate more than 500,000
people from all over the country t attend.
"The thing I like the most about this is that you get
probably the broadest variety of the cross-section of
the public that's possible," said Susan Froelich, exec-
utive director of the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair. "We
want to have anyone and everyone who's the least bit
interested in art, or who've maybe never thought
about art get exposed to it and learn about it.'
Froelich said the fairs offer a wide variety of
activities to interest people of all ages, including
"We want the artists here to be able to talk with the
public about what they do, how they do it, why they
do it and therefore build more connections between
contemporary artists and the public," Froelich said.
The art fairs' many artists must endure a strict
application process and exhibit certain qualifica-
tions to be selected by a panel of jurors.

presenting his work at the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair.
"Ann Arbor is a very educated crowd," Krieger
said. "Ann Arbor has a reputation that few other fairs
in the country have. They appreciate the work, and
they attract more artists."
Shary Brown, head of the Michigan Guild of Artists
and Artisans, the organizer of the Summer Art Fair,
said that although visual art may be the art fairs' main
attraction, the performing arts are also represented.
"All three fairs over the years have worked hard to
make sure that the performing arts are included and
there has always in one form or another been a large
