Emerging Artists Program
- Ann Arbor Street Art Fair: New Art, New Artists Program*
The New Art New, Artist Program (NANA) is a unique program offered by the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original. Knowing how challenging it is for young people to embark on a career in the art world, they created the NANA program to offer college students the experience of participating as an exhibiting artist in a major national art fair without incurring any of the costs. Students display and sell their work in a shared tent and are mentored by career art fair artists. The students gain a great deal of artistic exposure and experience firsthand what it's like to be an arts entrepreneur. Eight college artists are selected from a field of applicants through a jury process.
