The Degenerate Craft Fair is a sort of anti-art fair that was first created in 2009 by artists Amy Wilson and Shannon Broder. It was originally created as a way for artists to make a little extra money by selling inexpensive versions of their work just in time for the holidays.
Last year the fair featured over 20 artists and vendors and was held at three different locations over three weekends in December. This year there will be one big fair featuring more artists and more fun.
This year the Degenerate Craft Fair is going to be held at the DCTV Firehouse (87 Lafayette Street)
On December 11th from 12-10pm
December 12th from 12-8pm
The purpose of this event is to make it affordable for artists, they are paying a very small fee to participate and all the money is going directly towards the rent of the location.
Shannon has created a Kickstarter in order to raise the necessary funding to make this event possible. Half of the funds have been raised, but she will not receive any of the funding unless her goal is complete. Any support you can give can help, whether it is a donation (there are some really great rewards for donating), sending this link on to everyone you know, or even posting it on your Facebook wall.
