A crowd descended upon Ann
Arbor on a sizzling Wednesday
afternoon for the first day of
the city's 54th annual Art Fair,
which features hundreds of
booths exhibiting art, selling
food and hawking products
and promotions, as well as
displaying work from University
researchers.
The fair itself is a combination
of four separate fairs: the Ann
Arbor Art Fair, Ann Arbor's
South University Art Fair, the
State Street Area Art Fair and
the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair.
The fair runs until Saturday.
In total, it covers over 30 city
blocks with lltt artists and an
estimated half million people in
attendance. The artists hail from
all over, coming from 38 different
states and four countries along
with local Ann Arbor artists.
Art Fair spokesperson Daniel
Cherrin said the event is a kind
of two-way street: Ann Arbor
hosts the artists so they can be
included in one of the nation's
largest art fairs, while in return
the event brings business to the
city.
"The city itself is raw, the Art
Fair itself is another way to bring
people into the city and to enjoy
what it has to offer," he said. "It's
a Michigan tradition."
Cherrin said this year the fair
has expanded walking space to
better accommodate foot traffic,
added shuttle services and
increased parking options.
To address the projected
90-degree weather, Cherrin said
there will be misting stations
along South University Avenue
and State Street as well as an air-
conditioned trolley which will
tour the fair. Cherrin said staff
will remind attendees to stay
hydrated and; safe but he doesn't
expect the lte,.to de ter ans ni .

Michigan coach Kim Barnes
Arico does a lot of traveling by
plane these days.
For starters, there's the never-
ending cycle of recruiting visits all
over the country, followed by the
visits back home to Ann Arbor to
preside over her players and check
in on practices. Then there's the
upcoming trip to Europe with the
Michiganwomen'sbasketball team.
And in between all of it, is a vaca-
tion - a trip to Walt Disney World
in Orlando, Fla. with her family.
"I got an opportunity to take
my girls to Disney World," Barnes
Arico said. "I've been trying to do it
for years and last year getting hired
in the springI didn'treally have the
opportunity, so I had a chance to do
that and (also) to visit with my fam-
ily in the offseason."
But after the success of last sea-
son, in which the Wolverines fin-
ished 22-11 and advanced to the
se'ond round of \Ithe NCAA Tou.-

work out on their own with our
strength coach doing some lifting
and conditioning."
And for all the successes last
season, Barnes Arico and Michigan
will have have a lot of holes to fill
this season. The Wolverines lose
five seniors to graduation, all of
whom were an integral part of the
team, as they accounted for over 80
percent of the offense. Their grad-
uation turned the Wolverines into
an inexperienced squad overnight.
Highlighting the inexperience
are Michigan's three freshmen as
well as the addition of junior trans-
fer guard Shannon Smith from
North Carolina. In addition, four
players who tore their ACL last
summer are back with the team
after not playing all of last season.
"Obviously we have four new
kids and four returners coming
off of ACL surgery, so really that's
eight kids that haven't played last
year and a total of 11 on our roster,"
Barnes Arico said. "So, we're going
to be very inexperienced and very
vungn."

While the freshmen new faces
arrived to campus during the last
week of June, Smith has been in
Ann Arbor since the spring semes-
ter. During her freshmen season
in 2010-2011 at UNC, Smith was a
dynamic scorer but only played in
eight games before takinga medical
redshirt due to a lingering illness.
In Smith's sophomore cam-
paign, she played in 25 games and
averaged 3 points per game and 13
minutes per game. Smith, who still
has two more years of eligibility,
sat out the 2012-2013 season before
transferring to Michigan
"We're fortunate Shannon has
been here for both (the) spring ses-
sion and summer session and she's
just been an absolute pleasure to
have around," Barnes Arico said.
"She really made a commitment to
doing well in the classroom in her
first semester here and did a great
job. She's just such a competitive
kid and really truly loves the game
of basketball and has been a winner
every place that she's been.
"She is in the gym nonstop when
she's not in study hall or in class.
She spends her free time in the
gym really working on her game,
and I'm excited to have her because
she really wants to win. She's very
competitive and she wants to bring
her winning spirit to our program."
The rest of the new faces -
freshmen guards Siera Thompson,
Paige Rakers and Danielle Wil-
liams - have been on campus for
a couple of weeks and have been
hard at work both on and off the
court.
"They've had a wonderful tran-
sition," Barnes Arico said. "The
three of them are outstanding
young ladies from great fami-
lies and they're doing really well.
Academically, they've all gotten
off to a really great start (and)
socially, they're adjusting to life
in Michigan, life as a college stu-
dent. They're great kids and we're
expecting big things from them."
The Wolverines are taking a for-
eign trip to France and Spain to play
three games. The trip will allow
Michigan to have ten practices in
the summer and begin full practice
before many other teams. It won't
just be all fun, though, as the Wol-
verines are expected to make stops
to Lake Como, the Pantheon, Col-
osseum and Eiffel Tower.
"We're excited about (the
opportunity) to get a jump start on
things," Barnes Arico sail "We'
really fortunate to have thie tinme in

the summer to get some workouts
under our belt."
Amid the transitioning players
and continuous workouts, Barnes
Arico has also been in and out of
Ann Arbor traveling to recruit
players. Soon, formal practices
will be back in session and will be
added to the running list on Barnes
Arico's plate.
If the plane rides are what it
takes to get ahead of the game and
continue winning, then Barnes
Arico wouldn't have it any other
way.
Trip Details
After announcing its plans ear-
lier to take a trip to France and
Italy from August 19-29, the Michi-
gan women's basketball team has
released further details of the trip.
The 10-day long trip will begin

on the 19th when the Wolver- 40
ines depart Ann Arbor, heading
through the night to Paris - the
location of their first game, which
will take place on Aug. 23. Two
more games in Europe will follow
for Michigan, as it stops in Lake a
Como on the 24th and Rome on the
27th to complete its menage a trois.
In between the three games,
the Wolverines will makes stops in
the south of France and Florence
before heading back to Ann Arbor
on the 29th.
Of course, Michigan wouldn't be
ready for its series of games if not
for practice. The Wolverines will
commence their preparation on
Thursday, July 18th for four days
before completing the rest of their,
ten allowed summer practices in
August.

'M'RL'NE LACASSE/Uaiy
University researcher Jennifer Freeman describes a photograph to visitors at a booth of bio-artography, microscopic images
originally captured during scientific research.

people know that the Art Fair
is coming up and it's something
that we all plan for," he said.
Though the fair does not
include work from the School of
Art and Design, it does feature
some pieces from University
faculty. Among these includes
"bio-artography", a science-
meets-art creation by University
researchers.
Bio-artography is composed
of pictures taken during lab
work through microscopes and
features the naturally occurring
art within living cells.
Deborah Gumucio, professor
of cell and developmental biology
and head of the bio-artography
project, said she and her
colleagues started selling these
pictures at the Art Fair in 2005
as a way to raise money for young
student-scientists to attend
meetings across the country.
Gumucio said the process
involves faculty from five
University schools and 27
different departments with

researchers submitting images
they have taken during the
course of their work. Light and
color is then added in to the
received pictures. Gumucio
and five faculty members in
the School of Art and Design
then vote the pieces that will be
displayed.
The images portray anything
from cancer to stem cells,
Gumucio said. She added that on
top of being visually pleasing, the
pictures have the appeal of being
from actual work done at the
University.
Because of this, Gumucio said
the pictures both raise money
and help to educate and engage
the public on science. Through
her work, she has spoken at high
schools, forums and meetings to
discuss the way that science and
art can be used to promote each
other.
"We'll start talking about
something - let's say the induced
'iuripotenit sten cells," Gumucio
said. "And now you have an

opportunity to tell them what
the differences are between
whole-organ stem cells in an
adult versus pluripotent stem
cells that you make from an adult
versus embryonic stem cells."
Gumucio said the project
typically puts forth about 100
pictures, which usually generate
about $9,000 to $10,000 - half
of which goes to preparing the
images and the other half to the
students. Gumucio said since
2005, the project has sent over 60
students to meetings nationwide.
Theresa Reid, executive
director of Arts Engine and one
of the five artists that vote on the
images used in the project, said
the images are "fantastic" and
that she really supports the bio-
artography project.
"(Gumucio and her colleagues
have) been encouraged to see the
beauty of their scientific work
in ways that I don't think they
otherwise would have," Reid
said.

TODD NEEDLE/Daily
Coach Kim Barnes Arico will have to replace 80% of her offense this coming season.

nament, expectations are high for
both Barnes Arico and her team.
They know there's no time to rest.
"The young ladies had an oppor-
tunity to go home after they fin-
ished the winter semester, but for
the most part I think actually 100
percent of them chose to stay,"
Barnes Arico said. "They got about
a week break where they had a
chance to go home and see their
family and kind of unwind after
our season, and our season lasted
longer than it typically dines 'Their
they all came back and started to

New NCAA rules stipulate that
teams can work out together in the
summer for two hours per week.
The Wolverines have practice
twice a week at the end of May and
throughout all of June.
"This is the first summer where
coaches are allowed to work out
their teams," Barnes Arico said.
"(It) has been great for us because
it really gives us an opportunity to
help work on their game and really
develop our relationships especial-
ly with our new kids as long as sith
the returning kids in the prgram."
