Since 2010, Art on the Grand has found its way into the heart of Michigan art
lovers by being art-focused and having a hands-on approach. Artists accepted into
Art on the Grand will gain exposure to over 40,000 shoppers in a community that
vigorously promotes and supports the arts. Artists will enjoy courtesy booth sitters
for breaks, and complimentary coffee, water, and refreshments. Additionally,
many local restaurants will deliver meals directly to artist booths.
Fine artists and crafters from around the country are featured with booths
showcasing a variety of disciplines and price ranges. Different artistic categories
include painting, pottery, photography, jewelry, mixed media, wood, wearable
art, glass, leather, sculpture, and more.
All artwork must be handmade by the applying artist. No kits, molds, mass-
produced or resale items are allowed. Prints of original work are allowed. The 11
x 11 foot artist booth fee is $275 for both days. A $500 award for “Best of Show”
and two honorary “Mayor’s Awards” are given out each year.
Art on the Grand is presented by the City of Farmington Hills Special Services
Department’s Cultural Arts Division and the Farmington Downtown Development
