Good Things about this Art Fair:
Used to be quite good for sales. Fun atmosphere. Pretty good quality. Home show for me.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Very poor security. High off hours theft risk. Participate at your own risk because they don't care and offer no support. Thefts have become a regular problem during the night.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Inquire if they have improved security before participating.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
This show has been a good bet historically, but because of the greed of the sponsoring Kimball Art Center management, they only have security during the day to keep non-paying public from entering but none of that continues after closing each show day. Beware!
