Call for Entries - Deadline: April 15th 2012
Art on the Grand is a juried, fine arts show located right on Grand River Avenue in downtown Farmington, MI. Last year's show attracted over 100 talented artists from around the country. Despite the current state of the economy, this great fair has experienced an overwhelmingly positive response from participating artists, visitors, and the city governments. Farmington is a beautiful town surrounded by the larger City of Farmington Hills, located in Oakland County, the richest county in Michigan. This art fair is for you; with one of the nation's highest SEV's, Farmington and Farmington Hills vigorously support the arts, and welcome you to our community!
