Uptown Art Fair is Here

Uptown Art Fair 2447

The burbs are coming, the burbs are coming! Well folks, its that time of year again when people from everywhere including the suburbs grab there kids and head on out to the Metris Uptown Art Fair.

I’ll never forget my first encounter with this event. I woke up, went out to my balcony to get a feel for the weather only to find poorly parked cars bumper to bumper everywhere. There seemed to be a never ending stream of people walking past my place. Something was drastically wrong with this picture but I couldn’t tell what. I figured there must be a massive protest going down. No, no, no, that can’t be right. Then I noticed it was the people that looked out of place. These weren’t Uptown folk at all. There were families, couples holding hands with strollers. Not the trendy twenty somethings I was used to seeing everyday.

It was the Uptown Art Fair and what a fine Art Fair it is. Tons and tons of excellent art all crammed into a one weekend event. So much to see so little time. Good luck finding parking if you go. It’s a Zoo and everyone’s crazy for art. I'll be there camera in hand.
