SORT BY Relevancy
ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 3rd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. Our survey is the only national online look at the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities.
We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 25 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing.
Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them. Discover their choices for the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.
We'll share the survey answers on:
what makes a show "Best"
why people say they attend an art fair
why they don't attend shows they used to love
suggestions for show organizers
Lynn Smith, vice chair of the Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, will give her insights on how the fair garners so much enthusiasm throughout the greater metropolitan area, making it a "must attend" event. Art buyers from Florida and Ohio will also join us to tell us why they attend art fairs and buy art.
ArtFairCalendar.com's mission is to promote the American tradition of art fairs by showcasing events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

A combination of forces have converged at this moment to drive the most recent paradigm shift in transportation. However, a picture of how this New Mobility will unfold has not entirely come into focus. It is a time of rapid, disruptive experimentation, entrepreneurship, creativity and growth - as well as competition among many different ideas, technologogies, modalities and business models.

Could cultivating patience help you cope better with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD)?
The majority of individuals with PD, responding to a 2015 Parkinson’s Alliance survey think so. They reported that patience helps them cope with their symptoms, and over half of the participants reported that patience increased their engagement in social activities.
You may have been told by your parents or teachers that patience is a virtue to acquire, but, do you really know what patience is and how it might actually help anyone cope with disease?
Join Guests: Carol Walton, CEO of the Parkinson Alliance, and Neuropsychologist, Jeffrey Wertheimer, PhD, who will discuss 2015 Parkinson's Alliance survey results on patience and exercise, and other aspects of physical and psychological well-being as it relates to individuals with PD.
Join the discussion.

The 'Internet of Things' (IoT) is a game-changer for many industries, from manufacturing, to transportation, government, healthcare, education, retail and many, many more! With industry analysts expecting 50 - 70 BILLION connected devices by 2020 (in a world with just 7 Billion people), the impact of the ability to make everyday devices "talk" to each other and share data sets the stage to make radical changes in our lives and businesses.
To help us understand the expected impact of the 'Internet of Things' and to share with us information about the world's first IoT Virtual Conference and Exhibition on December 9th, Bill Mortimer, Conference Chair for IoT Slam 2015 will join host, Melissa Birnie at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, November 23rd.
One of the latest practices in biotech is a process that allows DNA to be edited down to the letter. Known as CRISPR technology, scientists now have the ability to control gene mechanisms with unprecedented accuracy and without traditional invasive high-cost GMO procedures as they exist now. In effect, CRISPR is the evolution of GMO. All of this allows corporations to continue producing genetically altered foods without ever having to worry about legislation or labeling mandates. As consumer "right to know" demand increases and more companies are responding to protests by voluntarily labeling GMO products or removing them from their ingredients altogether, industry is well ahead of the game and consumers should not be fooled into complacency. CRISPR technology allows a crafty bypass because it is not recognized technically as a GMO process as is currently defined. Industry can use this technology to dodge existing regulations now, or in the future, and avoid GMO stigmas in public perception as they continue driving corporate profit. They would not have to disclose this new process to regulators or the public, rendering the hotly debated GMO labeling issue effectively moot. Present day loopholes in an obsolete agribusiness regulatory system may be the biggest challenge yet as consumers fight to stay informed and aware of what is happening to the manufacturing of food. Is CRISPR technology the ultimate bait and switch in the GMO debate?
