They hung their art on snow fence that was set up along what&#39;s been called the most crooked street in the world.<br /><br />This year the fair drew around 100 artists who set up booths not just on Snake Alley but also on the adjacent Heritage Hill streets.<br /><br />They were joined by musicians, food and drink vendors, and thousands of art lovers looking to connect with a painting or a piece of jewelry or some other work of art.<br /> Tue, 19 Jun 2012 05:24:11 +0000 Rich Egger 16933 at http://tspr.org Thousands Show Up for Snake Alley Art Fair A Few Of Our Favorite Things http://tspr.org/post/few-our-favorite-things <p>The <a href="http://www.wciarts.org/" target="_blank">West Central Illinois Arts Center</a> in Macomb is trying something a little different.
