I just read a great article detailing the various art fairs coming up in Minneapolis the weekend of August 3-5, Loring Park, Powderhorn and the biggie – Uptown Art Fair. What I liked best about it was the welcome community impact that the festivals make, bringing grass roots notice to arts organizations and enabling art classes to flourish, giving local artists a place to exhibit.
The focus of this blog and the ArtFairCalendar.com is the traveling artists and where they will be next but it is great to stand still for a bit and appreciate what the events can mean to a local community. To read the whole article visit Lavender: Minnesota’s GLBT web zine to get yourself ready for “Art Palpitations” in early August.
