Art . Fair

(apologies for a lack of posting...my computer has recently decided that it only wants to connect to the internet sporadically, and for no more than five minutes at a time.)

This past Friday I went to the Ann Arbor Art Festival, something that completely takes over the town every summer. The art fair is set up so that you wander through the closed-off streets of downtown, and some of the prettiest parts of the UofM campus:




...hundreds of artisans set up to sell paintings, photographs, jewelry, and all manner of other lovely things:




We also had lunch at my favorite vegetarian restaurant, Seva, and I tried their Goat Cheese and Roasted Pepper Wrap...



...which was so tasty!! Toward the end of the day, we also saw possibly the cutest little dogs ever:



We didn't end up buying much (the original photograph that I wanted was $2200, and the installation that my mother wanted was $8500...boo), but it was a pretty day with perfect weather and tons of cool stuff to see!!

What a lovely website!

I also was there, but on Thursday and also had the goat cheese/veggie wrap for lunch at Seva.

Nice photos. Thanks for writing about the fair, the coolest thing that happens all year in Michigan.

I love those doggies!!

But even more, I love those buildings. I'm such a sucker for ivy-covered anything.
