Art can portray the world's most complex subjects: the passion of love, the horrors of war, and the despair of fruit waiting to be eaten. Hold a mirror to nature with today’s GrouponLive deal to the Uptown Art Fair, held Friday, August 5 to Sunday, August 7, at the intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue. Admission to the fair is free. Choose between the following options:
• For $12, you get $25 worth of locally brewed beer, soda, or water.
• For $12, you get an Uptown Art Fair commemorative print (a $25 value).
Visitors to the Uptown Art Fair can sip cold beverages, sample food from 20 vendors, collect a poster-size commemorative print, or browse the works of more than 360 artists on display. Thirsty patrons can slurp down hoppy libations from locally based Schell's Brewing ($5), choosing between classic Deer Brand and Original Light brews to loosen up the brain's art-appreciation ganglion. Alternatively, tickle tongues with a bubbly Pepsi or Diet Pepsi ($3 each) or procure a bottle of water ($3) for no-nonsense hydration.
Those who opt to take home the commemorative print, Calhoun Sails, can cloak shameful, naked walls with a 30"x23" poster whose image of boats docked at sunset was snapped by former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Matt Blair. After picking up your beverages or print, browse the fair's selection of woodcarvings, paintings, glasswork, jewelry, and other creatively crafted works, or bust a move to live music at the Performance Stage.
