IRON STREET FAIR
December 9, 2010
Iron Street Fair, held during the late summer in a crevice of Detroit. It was one of the last fresh summer days of Detroit left. The sun was soothing, but as soon as shade or shadow hit, chills filled, though they seemed prepared with heating lamps set up in the center of the fair. Iron Street almost felt like a wide alley with doors that led to galleries & abandoned buildings. The lone street was filled with artwork, from corner to corner of one side of the block, along with tents & booths, as well as a sound system for live entertainment.
Captured here are snapshots of the art displayed & voted on for a small art competition. Some competitors included Detroit artists, Sintex, Iges, & Riku. There are also photos of one of Detroit’s darlings, Espy, fully taking advantage of the day on her bike, partaking on fair festivities like face painting & all that fun fair stuff. There was much to bask in at Iron Street Fair, from art inside, to art outside, to art to wear (clothing, purses, fragrances), to art to share (pieces for sale).
