The Palmer Park Art Fair runs May 6th and 7th in Detroit's historic neighborhood. It's a great way to kick off the summer.  Click the video player for JoAnne Purtan's interview on 7 Action News At Noon.

The art fair includes 70 artists from 19 states. The even will be held May 6 and May 7 around the Log Cabin - just off Merrill Plaisance in the center of Palmer Park. It is produced by Detroit-based Integrity Shows in partnership with the People for Palmer Park.  The location is along Avenue between McNichols and 7 Mile.

"The Palmer Park Art Fair is a beautiful kickoff to the summer and the art fair season," said Mark Loeb, the event organizer and president of Integrity Shows.

Producers say the new poster for the event "celebrates the historic Log Cabin as it is renewed, just as the spring art fair celebrates the creative and eclectic spirit of the boutique, al fresco art sale."

The 2017 poster winner created by College for Creative Studies graduate Amy Ferguson shows tulips and blue skies surrounding the log structure built in 1885 for Sen. and Mrs. Thomas Palmer. The limited edition poster's border shows the historic Log Cabin windows, which are being renovated by the People for Palmer Park.
