ARTIST INFO | JURY REQUIREMENTS:
The Michigan Makers Market application is open to all local artists. All artwork must be handmade by the applying artist. No kits, molds, mass-produced or resale items are allowed. Prints of original work are allowed. If you have more than one artistic medium (e.g. jewelry & photography), this information must be included in your application for juror consideration. The jury wants to see the most current work that will be featured at the fair. The jury is made up of the Cultural Arts Division, a team of artists and art management professionals who will also be working the event. Artists must have a minimum of ten (10) pieces to sell at the fair. Application submission will not guarantee entry.
Michigan Makers Market will set up the tables and the artists will display their work and sell at their assigned table. Absolutely all artwork, inventory, boxes, etc. must be contained within your allotted space. Artists are responsible for their own property, their own tablecloth and for furnishing their own currency to make change.
