What You'll Get
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 Groupon to the Uptown Art Fair held Friday, August 5, through Sunday, August 7, at the intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue. Admission to the fair is free. Choose between two 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 their art-appreciating minds. Alternatively, tickle tongues with a bubbly Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, or any other Pepsi product ($3 each) or procure a bottle of water ($3) to slurp no-nonsense hydration. Those who opt to take home the 2011 commemorative print, Calhoun Sails, can cloak 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 beverage 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.
