Art Center revamps fine art fair

The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center introduced a whole slew of new stuff for 2010.


The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center introduced a new partner, a new location and a new format for its 2010 fine art fair.

The 2010 Art Birmingham will be produced by the BBAC in association with The Guild of Artists and Artisans, a Michigan-based national leader in art festival events and programming. The 2010 festival will take place at the “gateway” to Birmingham, May 15-16.

The new location on Old South Woodward runs south from Maple to Hazel, and allows for greater interaction among the city’s civic and business community, artists, visitors and volunteers. The event features work for sale from more than 150 artists working in a broad spectrum of visual media.

“Our new collaboration will help us continue our mission as a regional resource for the arts, artists and art education,” said Jane Linn, CEO of the BBAC. “With The Guild, we bring in a team of expert art event producers, with nearly four decades of resources and experience. The partnership ensures this premier arts event will continue to be effectively produced and provide our patrons with the highest festival quality.
