Your challenge Create a t-shirt inspired by the sounds that surround you. Open your ears, what do you hear? The rumble of a distant highway. The buzz of summer cicadas. A universe of pulses, beats, music, voices. We listen closely to the sounds we want to hear-because no one will hear them exactly the same way we do.
The Art Fairs begin this week in Ann Arbor. Tonight, locals get a pat on the back for being good sports about hosting the large crowds the fairs bring to the downtown area. As WEMU's Bob Eccles reports, there will be plenty to do at tonight's kick-off to Art fairs week.
The Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authory has awarded a five-thousand dollar grant that will provide stipends for young, local artists to create murals on the western edge of the city. WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports.
