Aug. 24-25 – Hazel Park Art Fair

Hazel Park, MI- This Saturday starts the 2019 Hazel Park Art Fair, presented by My Town Properties.

In its 8th year, the fair has continued to grow and features more local artists than ever before. Shopping at one of over 70 booths, you’re sure to find that perfect gift for everyone on your holiday and birthday lists – no last minute shopping here.

Items for purchase include family-friendly artwork spanning all mediums — 2D and 3D, decorative and functional — including drawings, paintings, photography, ceramics, metalworking, jewelry and more.

Bring the kids because we have a weekend filled with free art projects!

Saturday we’re being joined by STUDIOWERQ, a local Hazel Park art studio offering regular art classes. The kids will be able to make one, or all, of the available projects – egg creatures , magic nature wands, and friendship bracelets.

Come back on Sunday where the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) sets up their mobile workshop for making tambourines.

Other things to find at the art fair include food served up by local food trucks Nosh Pit and Hero or Villain, aerial performances by Shadow’s Circus, craft beer and cider (including gluten-free and keto-friendly options), live figure drawing, and live music featuring local bands.

Local artist Clara Strzalkowski says, “There is such a variety … and there are always new artists showcasing their work. Ultimately, it is the best art fair I’ve ever been a part of, and it’s why I keep coming back.”

The Hazel Park Arts Council is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on bringing art to the community and making art accessible for all. Learn more at https://hpartfair.org.
