DIYispy: It's Pronounced "dipsee"

. August 1, 2014.

More intimate than the acclaimed Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, DIYispy is a small, low-key art fair that makes a big impact on the community. 40 local indie artists will sell one-of-a-kind creations from ceramics to stationary, home goods to handmade clothing. In the beer garden of the Corner Brewery, breeze through a sculpture park full of funky 3D pieces, including interactive arcade games designed by Detroiter David Gazdowicz. Hosted by Cre Fuller of Tin Angry Men (found art robots), Sherri Green of the Library Lab (turning old books into planters) and Marcy Davis of All Things Grow (graphic design), and sponsored entirely by local businesses, DIYipsy is a hometown event made complete with food, craft beers, cocktails, and you.

Saturday, August 23 and Sunday, August 24. Corner Brewery, 720 Norris St., Ypsilanti. Under 21 accompanied by an adult. diypsiartfair.weebly.com—MW
