This is a big week for Ann Arbor--it's Art Fair week!  Before the city gets taken over by thousands of art lovers from around the world, locals get to celebrate with the annual Townie Street Party.

I spoke with Maureen Riley, executive director of the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, about this big event.
