Townie party begins fair

New booth formation
will give the Ann Arbor
Street Art Fair a new
look, ease conjestion
By Arikia Millikan
For the Daily
Ann Arbor's 47th annual Street
Art Fair will kick off on Wednesday
and will feature a new layout while
remaining close to the city's summer
The Townie Street Party will
begin the festivities tonight, fea-
turing music from local artists. Jill
Jack and the RFD Boys will open for
local headliners Bill Kirchen, Rich
Dishman and Sarah Brown.
Of the 175 street artists on display
this year, three are emerging onto
the scene from the University's Cre-
ative Studies Program.
Although seasoned Art Fair vet-
erans will undoubtedly find famil-

iarities among the vendors and
exhibitions, a new formation of art-
ist booths and venue sites will pro-
vide the fair with a fresh look and an
easily navigable viewing route.
According to Shary Brown, Executive
Director of the Art Fair, it's the "same
great location, new configuration."
The layout strays slightly from pre-
vious years. Instead of lining Thayer
and Washington Streets asymmetri-
cally, the booths will be arranged in
a more "positive" layout.
Forming an aerial plus sign, exhib-
its will extend from Fletcher to Thayer
Street on North University Avenue,
perpendicularly bisected by a second
line of booths stretching from Wash-
ington Street into the Diag.
Entertainment sites will be locat-
ed throughout the fair, with musical
acts anchored in the N. Ingalls mall
area near Burton Memorial Tower.
Art Fair-goers will have the
opportunity to pulse to the rhythm
of Mr. B's piano and music from
a variety of singers, dancers and

musicians ranging from Chicago's
Jeff Libman to local bands such as
Comatose Colin.
For children, the ArtZone and Imag-
ination Station, presented by Chelsea's
Center for the Artswill feature free and
continuous hands-on activities.
On Friday, the University Alumni
Center will host M-day, with activities
including an ice cream social and Uni-
versity-themed bandana painting.
Throughout the week, 18 dif-
ferent artists and members from
the Potters Guild will give hourly
demonstrations on crafts such as
pein-air pastel techniques and jig-
saw-puzzle carving.
Organizers will announce the 2006
Featured Artist on Thursday, a title
based on excellence and originality
demonstrated in last year's event.
To ensure that the judging of the
art is fair, a committee of jurors
including Mary Schmidt, associate
dean of the University's School of
Art and Design, Imre Molnar, dean

An article in last week's edition of the Daily (Radioheadfrontman finds sound
on 'Eraser,'7/10/06) incorrectly stated that Hail to the Thief was Radiohead's
follow-up to Kid A. In fact, it was Amnesiac.
