Uptown Art Fair returns

The 45th annual Uptown Art Fair is now on display.

The 2008 art fair will be spread over three days at Lake & Hennepin. The annual event will feature hundreds of sculptors, painters and artists of all calibers.

The fair kicked off at noon today, and will stay open tonight until the tents are tied up at 8:30 p.m. Art will be revealed again at 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. tomorrow. And finally, on Sunday, the Art Fair will put on a finale from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A number of performances will also take place all three days.

New additions in 2008 include: "Graffiti as Fine Art." The U.S. Postal Service will package and mail art on site and a number of liquor establishments will hold events in tandem with the Art Fair.
