The fifth annual Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire is happening this Saturday, June 8 from 10-5 pm. We have a new location this year, at the Morris Lawrence building on the Washtenaw Community College campus. As usual, it's free to attend.
We've got a great range of Makers lined up this year, from student presentations to inventors and local researcher-artists. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

Once agian, our LSA students and members of the community managed to throw two great parties at FestiFools and FoolMoon. Since 2006 WonderFool Productions, led by Mark Tucker and powered by a group of (mostly) non-art majors and community volounteers, has been serving up some Italian flavored foolishness to Ann Arbor with music, lights, and giant politically incorrect puppets. This year went off without a hitch, and much fun was had by all. Rather than try and explain the joy of foolishness, I will just post some pictures and video from the recent events!
