Deadline: April 30

In 2007, with the opening of the beautiful revamped riverfront in downtown Detroit, a coalition came together to host a celebration aimed at inviting metro Detroiters downtown to enjoy the new space. And did they ever love it! Almost 500,000 people attended to enjoy the festivities and enjoy what Michigan has to offer in the summer time.

In its second year GM River Days will host a new section of the festival, highlighting the visual arts, Art on the River. It will be composed of the artwork of artists from the GM automotive design team, plus twenty-five emerging and professional artists. This will be your opportunity to showcase your art in a lovely riverfront setting, supported by a professional staff and a seasoned promotional team sure to bring many new faces to your booth.

Please note: there are only 25 spaces available, apply today!

The staff for Art on the River includes Connie Mettler and Lisa Konikow, along with the rest of the staff from Pontiac’s popular Arts, Beats & Eats.

To learn more email Lisa Konikow or Connie Mettler.

    I am very interested in showing my jewelry and sculptures but I need to know how much the fee for a booth is. Unfortunately I am in a catch 22.
    I am not working and can not afford the usual 400.00 for a booth at most shows, but I also can never get started selling my work if I don’t have a booth at an art fair. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your time. Dev
