    Winners! 2015 "Best Art Fairs in America" Survey

    in Business

    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.

    Talking Motorcycles with Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys Chuck Koro

    in Sports

    We ride motorcycles for a multitude of reasons. The movie "Why We Ride" illustrated many of them. I have mine and you have yours. Regardless of why we ride there are times when things go badly. As motorcyclist we go down. What we do in the minutes, hours, days and weeks that follow a motorcycle accident makes a difference. Do you know what those things are?

    Chuck Koro with Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys joins us in this episode to educate and inform us on the answers to those questions and more. We will delve deeply into the topic of motorcycle accident and injury. Together we will learn valuable information about this all important topic to us all. 

    The old adage is that there are two types of motorcycle riders, those that have gone down and those that will. We may add one more and that is those that will again. Accidents of many types are a fact of life in motorcycling. It is a subject we may prefer to avoid but that may be a costly mistake!

    Thank you for listening to this episode of Talking Motorcycles with Barry Boone powered by Crosley Brands!

    Special thanks to: The Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires and Bell Powersports.

     The power of Art / Art as a weapon

    Sol is a artist with a vision, therefore he is a visual artist. He prides himself as being one that pushes the envelope as it pertains to the traditional sense of what a artist should or should not be. He pushes the envelope on what a artist should or should not do as well. Under the fold of the EyEcOnOgRaPhY movement Sol specializes in creative imagery, mixed media art, collages, street photography, graffiti art, and custom portrait framed artwork with a twist. At the very core of his work is the ability to enhance and recapture the moving parts, the pulse, the heartbeat of vintage antique images. Family images, loved ones, lost ones, not necessarily the "celebrity" but the EyEcOnS of your own lineage. To find greatness one only has to travel as far as that old worn family photo album located in the closet, basement, or garage collecting dust. We are all EyEcOnS for we are all direct descendants of EyEcOnS. With that being the case, BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY! Join Us as we welcome special guest Sol Ra El Bey to our radio show as he expounds on why and how art is a weapon. Call in at 323-870-3897 or login at www.blogtalkradio.com/usot
