The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization which produces the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original and the Townie Street Party.
The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is the original of a collective of four concurrent and contiguous fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July. Established in 1960 and still true to its mission of increasing public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts, the Original Ann Arbor Art Fair presents consistently high quality, all original work. The Street Art Fair, the Original takes place on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan.
The mission of the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair 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.
