The Old Town Art Fair will celebrate its 60th anniversary on June 13th and 14th as the charming, tree-lined streets of the city's historic Old Town Triangle District will set the stage for 260 nationally acclaimed artists and an estimated 50,000 art lovers.
The artists featured in the 2009 Old Town Art Fair were chosen by an independent jury of professional artists, gallery owners and museum curators. As with every year, the Old Town Art Fair will feature a wide range of art mediums, including 2D- and 3D- mixed media, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, and works in metal, stone, and wood.

The requested donation is $7.00. There is no donation requested for children 12 and under. Proceeds benefit a host of local youth groups, schools, and neighborhood preservation projects.
Other highlights of the 2009 Old Town Art Fair will include the “Gallery of Gardens (a garden walk through more than 30 urban home gardens)”,a self-guided historic tour of the Old Town Triangle District, a children's corner offering arts and crafts activities, and a food court hosted by popular local eateries.
