See These Local Artists at the Common Ground Street Art Fair

The annual art festival will take place Saturday and Sunday on South Old Woodward Avenue in downtown Birmingham.

Common Ground's 38th Annual Birmingham Street Art Fair returns to downtown Birmingham this weekend, featuring artwork from a variety of Birmingham-area and Metro Detroit artists.

Produced in association with the Guild of Artists and Artisans, the fair will spotlight artwork from more than 160 juried artists and artisans, most of which will be available for purchase. Art on display includes ceramics, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, photography and more.

The fair is a major fundraiser for Common Ground, a nonprofit emergency help line for adults, youths and families in crisis. To raise funds, the group will be holding an auction throughout the weekend, with artwork donated by participating artists.
