What to Expect at an Art Fair

Each Art in the 'Burg is different. Different artists attend so that always means different media and styles of art.  Many artists use the fair as a "jumping point" to get known before showing in larger venues or galleries.

Williamsburg Arts District

While there aren't many creative economy businesses in the district yet, there is still art to be found! Art in the 'Burg is currently the main art event being held in the district but there are examples of public are throughout!
