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.  Located on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan, the Street Art Fair, the Original, does not host sidewalk sales or merchandise vendors. The Street Art Fair is the only Ann Arbor fair to be named to AmericanStyle's list of Top-Ten Art Fairs and is known for attracting collectors, corporate buyers, and gallery representatives
