Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.
We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.
p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.
I was at the Broadripple open jurying and found it to be so interesting. I did not have an entry, so had no special reason for going aside from my interest in seeing the process. I have several questions, however, and left a message for you after the jurying process. I wonder if there is a rubric for the scoring? Also, are there catagories amid the process? Are the jurors representative of different types of art? For example, do the booth shots get a separate score from the art shots? How much does the cohesiveness of the art shots weigh in the jurying?
