The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is the original of a collective of four concurrent fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July.

Located on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of he University of Michigan, the Street Art Fair, the Original, offers a serene atmosphere that does not include sidewalk sales or merchandise vendors.  The Street Art Fair is known for attracting collectors, corporate buyers, and gallery representatives.

How is this show? I know it is a big one but have heard that the focus has shifted away from the art part and been more commercial. The fees are up there for this one too
