Art Fair Audio Memories

In honor of the 50th Street Art Fair, the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, AADL, and WEMU are working together to create a collection of oral history memories. These come from artists, organizers, and fairgoers alike to paint a full picture of what the art fair is to everyone who participates in it. Below you can hear all of the audio memories in the collection. If you would like to record your own memories of the art fair, email us at productions@aadl.org to set up an appointment or just attach your own recording made at home. Help us keep the history of the art fair alive with your story!
