More than 250 artists from around the country will descend upon the city to sell their creations at the 50th annual on July 13-16. As part of our continued coverage of the fair, Wyandotte Patch is highlighting select artists.

How long have you been selling at the Wyandotte Street Art Fair? This is my first year here.
What do you sell? I create three-dimensional miniature replica stadiums from layers of wood and aerial photographs. The backside shows a unique history with game-day photos.
What is your booth number at this year's fair? 39
Out of all the fairs in the country, why do you choose to participate in Wyandotte’s? I've heard from other experienced crafters that this show is great.
Tell us an interesting tidbit about yourself or your work. A guy walked up to my booth at a recent show, pointed at one of my jumbo lighted stadiums and said: "My dad used to run the football in there. He was a running back on that field." Turns out I was speaking to the son of Ernie Green from the Cleveland Browns. He purchased one for his dad for Father's Day. That was a special sale for me.
