2 December 2009

For immediate release

Announcing the Degenerate Craft Fair, a sort of anti-art-fair featuring over 20 artists and designers. Just in time for holiday shopping, it will take place in the first three weekends of December at three different locations, and feature works of art generally priced under $50.

Organized by artists Amy Wilson and Shannon Broder, this event was originally designed to help a group of friends weather the recession together. “Artists have been really devastated by the terrible economy. So we wanted to come up with a way to help ourselves to make a little extra money by selling inexpensive versions of our work – books, prints, multiples, whatever we can come up with,” states Wilson. From that point, the DCF was founded and has now grown to involve a whole variety of artists and objects, including jewelry, stuffed animals, CDs, stickers, clothing, zines, and even square inches of Detroit, MI.
