It’s hard to believe that the UnFair has been going on for 19 years. What began as a counterpoint to the St. James Court Art Fair, with its subversive, anti-establishment attitude, the UnFair has now become a tradition and an institution. Out-of-towners know about it. Little kids know about it. Hell, my mom knows about it. Yet, still the outsider vibe maintains. The artwork displayed is usually reactionary, mischievous and pure fun, with a much more risky flair than what is displayed down the street. So while you’re at St. James picking up your lawn ornaments and decorative purses, swing by the UnFair and see something shocking, or beautiful, or confusing. All are welcomed at the UnFair.

This trend has continued on into adulthood, where he has earned his BA in Fine Arts from Indiana University, received multiple awards for his creative endeavors and is still currently clueless about sports or cars.
