WELCOME BACK MR. B! 2023 marks the 43rd year that Mr. B has been a part of the Street Art Fair - the Original!
Forty years ago a tall young man dragged an upright piano to the corner of South University and East University Avenues, in the middle of the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, and started to play. He went by the name Mr. B and he’s been back every year since.
In 2003 the Original Street Art Fair relocated to the North University side of the Diag and Mark Braun (aka Mr. B) came along and has become an official tradition of the Fair. Recently, Mr. B acquired a bicycle equipped with a flatbed trailer to pull along his 352 pound piano. Mr. B has brought his unique musical style to our streets. You’ll find Mr. B and his guest players all day, every day on N. University.
