|Artisphere is set up on the west end of Main Street|
Every May, Greenville, SC hosts Artisphere, one of the best fine art and craft street fairs in the United States.
The main thoroughfare of the city is blocked off for artists and craftsmen from all over the United States to set up tents displaying their art. I don't think I have ever seen so many different artistic medias represented in one festival.
|One of 120 exhibit booths|
There are photographers, and painters, glass blowers, metal and wood sculptures, printers, fiber artists, furniture makers, jewelers , basket makers, ceramists, and digital artists displaying their unique artwork.
