Ann Arbor Art Fair 2012

Art Fair has something for everyone. My personal favorite find this year was a fountain made of old trumpets. Rick Heard of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is the artist behind this trash-to-treasure creation, shown in the first photo. More of his whimsical work can be seen in the second photo. Scroll down for more scenes from this year's Art Fair, including a blacksmithing demonstration by a faculty member from the College for Creative Studies and the Violin Monster performing and being interviewed by NPR. On a personal note, the Friday night of Art Fair marked the exact three-year anniversary of my move to Ann Arbor. It's been an amazing three years and I'm still loving it here. Thanks, Tree Town.
