The Talbot Street Art Fair is the longest running outdoor art fair in central Indiana. Since its beginning in 1956, organizers have strived to make each year better than before. Celebrating this year its 61st year, the fair features over 250 artists both locally and from across the United States. The artists converge on Talbot Street between 16th and 20th Streets to present their work in many mediums. These include sculpture, glass, painting, jewelry, photography, ceramics, wood, printmaking, mixed media and fiber. The host neighborhood, Herron-Morton Place, invites several food venues to the site, so refreshments can be purchased while viewing the art. This is a family-friendly event, and as always, the admission is free! The fair will be held, rain or shine. Since most artists travel with solid tent protection, this allows the event to master the weather. Many good conversations have been held in artists’ tents during a rain shower. This year’s fair will be held June 11-12. Hours on Saturday are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hours on Sunday are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Talbot Street Art Fair provides scholarship programs to various educational institutions in the fine art disciplines.
