Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Hi Karen....Wow! Congratulations for getting in the 57th Street Art Fair....from what I understand, it is a very, very hard show to get into....I have seen the fair grow from the school parking lot out to the surrounding street/s....last year I tried to go but could not find a parking space nearby so I gave up. I don't think everyone would have that attitude, I left because I was just going to see what type of crowd they draw now (I haven't been in years but it is always on my list of shows to visit)...I got an answer to that question when I got within 2 blocks of the site....people, people every where.
I don't know the other show you are considering and I don't know sales information for 57th Street but I can say it is a beloved show of the Hyde Park/University of Chicago area and it is well supported.
Let me know if you end up doing it....I'd love to come visit your booth!
