Arts Festival Conference in Chicago - Catching up on the Art Fair Business

Chicago September 6-7 the 4th Annual Arts Festival Conference presented by ZAPP and WESTAF was held in downtown Chicago. To correct some assumptions, the conference is not "about" ZAPP, its purpose is to bring artists, art fair organizers and other arts professionals together to share information about culture and arts festivals in the U.S. I've attended a bunch of arts conferences and there is always great energy around them as people in the business meet face to face those…

Is This Art Fair Heaven? St. Louis Art Fair

Eagerly I drove down I-55 through the corn fields of Illinois from Chicago. For someone who loves to be on the road I was nearly ecstatic to be seeing the country again and also anticipating seeing friends in St. Louis. As I pulled into St. Louis at 5:10 pm the skies opened up with heavy rain and the wind roared between the buildings. No art fair for me or anyone else that…

Walker Art Museum Presents: Cat Videos!

Something fun for this holiday weekend. You may (or may not) know that some of the most popular videos on the Internet are ones featuring cats. The well-regarded modern Walker Art Museum of Minneapolis held its first Internet Cat Video Film Festival recently featuring 70 videos of cats in t-shirts, cats pounding on pianos, etc.

With more than 70 videos, the Walker mounted a social experiment as much as a film festival. At issue was whether cat video lovers used to gorging…
