Call for Artists - Applications Being Accepted for 2013 Street Art Fair


Ann Arbor -

The 54th Annual Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the original of a collective of four concurrent fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July, is now accepting applications from visual artists for participation in the 2013 Art Fair.

The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization whose mission is to increase public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts by creating opportunities that connect artists, the Ann Arbor community and the general public to their mutual benefit; culminating in a top quality juried art fair.

Located on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan, the Street Art Fair presents consistently high quality, all original work.

The Street Art Fair is the only one of the Ann Arbor fairs to be named to AmericanStyle Magazine's list of Top-Ten Art Fairs and is known for attracting collectors, corporate buyers, and gallery representatives. The combined Ann Arbor Art Fair draws more than 500,000 fairgoers from across the nation.

The 2013 Art Fair dates are Wednesday, July 18 through Saturday, July 20.

Submissions are being accepted via the on-line jury management site, ZAPPlication.org. To apply, artists must first register for a ZAPPlication account then complete the Street Art Fair's application. Applications will be accepted through midnight January 15, 2013.

Todd Courser of Lapeer, Cindy Gamrat of Plainwell and Gary Glenn of Midland -- all correctly identified by Finley as a "trio (who) seeks tea party tyranny." Nolan describes Glenn and Courser as "extremely anti-gay (who) would turn the Republican Party into a fundamentalist denomination of the Christian Church if given the chance." Finley warned that the trio's narrow views on the Legislature could cripple the government and its ability to work across the aisle to move the state forward. Their agenda also includes killing any expansion of the Elliot-Larsen act to include LGBT protections.
