The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization whose mission 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, including a top quality juried street art fair.
It is the time of year that many non-profit organizations ask their supporters to make a charitable donation and the Original Ann Arbor Street Art Fair is no exception. The forced cancellation of the 2020 Street Art Fair due to the COVID-19 pandemic has meant the organization’s revenue is down by 88%. Our reserves have kept us afloat with a pared-down staff and lots of belt-tightening, but our future is not secure. We need you now more than ever.
Normally, your contribution would support the educational and ancillary programs presented by the Original Fair; like the Youth Art Fair; the New Art, New Artist College Student Program; the Art Activity Zone; and the Demonstration Zone. However, this year your contribution will help sustain us until we can once again present outstanding art and these quality programs that add value to both the Art Fair and our community.
