WELCOME TO THE ART FAIR In Ann Arbor, during four special days each July, it is art that draws more than 400,000 visitors to our community. Since its modest beginnings as a small art show more than 50 years ago, the Ann Arbor Art Fair has become not only one of Ann Arbor’s premier events, but a testament to the power of art in our lives. It holds a respected position in Ann Arbor’s rich cultural community and has earned an international reputation for excellence. Each year, art enthusiasts and seasoned collectors see newly created works by more than 1,000 well-known and emerging artists and have the opportunity to be in direct contact with the artists who create these unique works, a rare experience in today’s mass-produced world. With respect and admiration for an always remarkable and distinctive presentation, the City of Ann Arbor salutes the Ann Arbor Art Fair and its many community partners, volunteers and sponsors. We are proud to host this important cultural event and to offer the unique pleasures of our city to its many attendees. It is my distinct and true privilege to welcome all of you to the 2017 Ann Arbor Art Fair. Christopher Taylor Mayor of the City of Ann Arbor THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
