Talbot Street Art Fair 2014
Now in its 56th year, the Talbot Street Art Fair is one of those events that for some marks the unofficial start of summer.
Over 270 vendors from across the Midwest set up tents this weekend at the Talbot Street Art Fair, selling goods that ran the gamut from crafts to fine art.
First held on Mother's Day weekend in 1956 with 15 vendors participating, the fair is a linchpin of one of the busiest weekends of the year in the city.
Patrons were free to roam between the Harrison Center for the Arts — which hosted the Independent Music + Arts Festival and INDIEana Handicraft Exchange on Saturday afternoon — and the Near-Northside neighborhood streets that become tent-lined, pedestrian-only thoroughfares during the fair.
