Here’s something that’s worth checking out when it comes around again next year: Art Birmingham, an awesome little art fair held in Shain Park near downtown Birmingham. It’s like Arts Beats and Eats without the crushing crowds – and the beats (well, there was one guy playing what looked like a xylophone), and nowhere near as extensive the variety of eats (though there was some delicious kettle corn). Ok, so maybe it isn’t too comparable to Arts Beats and Eats, but this year’s lineup showcased an impressive variety of artists, and while I couldn’t quite afford most of the gorgeous wares being offered there, it was free and very lovely to window-shop. And I got my first sunburn of the season! That’s not exactly something to be proud of, but it just feels phenomenal to finally be here at this wonderful time of year in Michigan where we are able to experience sunburn.
