The 2013 Ann Arbor Art Fair

Whether you’re a connoisseur of art or just wanted your wife to shut up about that empty space in your living room, chances are you may have found yourself at Ann Arbor’s annular Street Art Fair last weekend. The Ann Arbor Art Fair is an annual even held in and around the University of Michigan campus featuring thousands of artists from the crafty to the just plain disgustingly expensive. But if you get board easily looking at wire and bead crafted rings or don’t have 18,000 dollars in your pocket to spend on a painting—and yes, we found one that expensive—you can always take in some of the many music and preforming artists featured at and around the event. So naturally, Badger Senate took to the street to see the good, the bad, and the just plain odd walking the streets of AA.
