The Shadow Art Fair: Ypsi's Alternative to the Hype
January 27, 2010
Ann Arbor has a huge monster sized Art Fair every summer. It's more like several art fairs in one. I remember a protest one year: "It's not art and it's not fair."
Ypsilanti is a town next door that is still like AA used to be. Funky and affordable.
Nowadays in early December they hold a counter-art fair in a local brewpub. It rocks hard with dozens of booths and maybe a thousand attendees and a good party for all. They used to hold it closer to the Big Bad AA Art Fair but now they're just their own thing.
Check it out if you're around. It's all indie, DIY, craft-type art. It's run by a longtime zinester and his pals.
