We're only a few months away from ArtPrize so look at this as the warm up!  The 51st Annual Grand Haven Art Festival is this weekend, June 23rd - 24th.  Washington Avenue will be turned into an outdoor art gallery.  There will be lots of local talent and it will also feature art from 150 of the nation's leading artists.  There will also be a Family Day Of  Fun, June 23rd, 10am-2pm, with arts and crafts activities for the kids.   Admission and parking are free and open to the public both days.

Art will include paintings, photography, life size sculptures, wood, jewelry, glass, collage pieces as well as ceramics.   There is a little something for every budget, from $25 to thousands of dollars.

Toledo used to have an event similar to this called the Crosby Festival Of The Arts, it was at the Toledo Botanical Gardens.  It was so much fun to attend because you had a chance to see a lot of art, meet the artisans, and it was all in one place! 

Times and dates are Saturday, June 23 and 24th, 10 am-5pm in downtown Grand Haven.
