Call for Artists: Farmington Hills, MI



ART on the GRAND
July 18th, 19th & 20th
Fri & Sat: 10am-9pm, Sun: 11am-5pm
Application deadline: April 1

Weary of huge, impersonal summer art fairs? Come claim a grassy plot in Downtown Farmington at Art on the Grand – southeast Michigan’s artist-friendly alternative.

Art on the Grand is the fine arts section of the 43-year-old Farmington Founders Festival, located right on Grand River Avenue in the heart of Farmington. The Festival is our community’s premier event, with the weekend’s many, varied events including nearby concerts and performances, children’s activities, and food vendors (we recommend the homemade blueberry pies).

This art fair really is for you – past participants at Art on the Grand tell us how much they appreciate the special attention they receive, and feel they are not lost in the crowd. We will do everything we can to treat you right:

  • Provide assistance the day of set-up and the evening of take-down
  • Put our reliable staff at your disposal, to relieve you for breaks
  • Offer donuts, bagels, and coffee in the morning, and cold bottled water or lemonade for the sultry afternoons

Our artists have tell us how much they enjoy our fair, as opposed to a massive, impersonal fair setting, where they get lost in the crowd of exhibitors. They love the special attention they receive both from us and the crowd that attends, calling this a “gem of an art fair”.

Art on the Grand is a juried show, accepting applications in any artistic medium, provided it is

  • fine
  • original
  • handmade (original prints may be sold)

At stake is a $500 “Best of Show” prize, as well as two honorary Mayor’s Choice awards from the mayors of Farmington Hills and Farmington, plus, of course, whatever sales you make (all commission-free)! Cost for a 10 X 10 booth for all three days is only $250.

This art fair is for you: with one of the nation’s highest SEVs, Farmington and Farmington Hills vigorously support the arts, and welcome you to our community.
