ART FAIR ON AND OFF THE SQUARE

07/12/12

If it’s 100 degrees and humid it must be Art Fair weekend. Actually this weather is no joking matter, but if anything can take our minds off the heat it’s the annual tradition of beauty and craft that surrounds our Capitol this Saturday and Sunday. The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s event on the Square features 450 artists of every medium including digital this year. But as always we give a special shout out to the Art Fair OFF the Square along Martin Luther King, Jr., Blvd., with its roster of 127 artists, every one of whom is from Wisconsin. It’s the buy local art fair and we like having our states best in one place. So don’t forget, at some point as you travel around the Square this week, make that turn down MLK and help support our local artists in what continues to be a challenging economy for all. It’s the cool thing to do.
