Who likes art fairs? Apparently the entire city of Minneapolis. Theyre hosting three big ones this week. Powderhorn Art Fair will be exhibiting art by over 180 individuals both Saturday and Sunday. Proceeds from this art fair benefit community programs, including theater groups, a teen center, and art studios in the neighborhood. Those looking to avoid the hell that is weekend traffic should fear not: Metro Transit will be offering free rides to the three art fairs Saturday and Sunday. However, the Hiawatha light rail will not be running, so plan your transportation accordingly. For more info call 612.722.4817 or visit www.powderhornartfair.com.
