This is the only thing I'll miss about Ann Arbor. You never knew what you'd find in that alley.

Don't Panic Erica!! That Alley is alive and thriving. They've only closed off one wing of it in the last year or so and I suppose that's for security reasons for the stores facing the street.
The reason I'm going to miss that alley is I'm not going to be doing the show any more. The sales had dropped to the point where they weren't paying for the extremely high booth and application fees. Not to mention the third year in a row of hundred degree heat. Then there was the year when we got brief relief from the heat on the last day when it rained. Shortly after that the sun came back out and there was plenty of time for it to heat thing up again so that we were packing up in a steam bath. No more.
Well, the truth is that I was going to turn down the re-invite from South U. but South U. failed to re-invite me. It's kind of like I was getting tired of a girl friend and was about to break it off but she wound up beating me to it.
As an artist who went to school at U of M and graduated in 2012, and now doing art fairs myself... this is one of the saddest things I've read on this entire site. I LOVED that alley way! We used to sneak through it every time there was a bad speaker for Penny Stamps Lectures. So many amazing memories just as a student there, and this is so sad to hear it is not longer there!!!
That alley looks better because of the art work.
I take it you are not going back there, Bill.
When I walked past it on Friday during the art fair there was a musician playing and children dancing.
