Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

RACINE – The Starving Artist Fair, canceled because of COVID-19 in 2020, will be back this year in a new location.

The art event will feature the works of 110 artists. Further, the event will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 1. The DeKoven Center, 600 21st Street (21st and Wisconsin Avenue), is the event venue.

Sponsored by the Racine Art Guild, the Starving Artist Fair has been held annually for 52 years. For most years, the one-day fair has been staged at East Park on the Gateway Technical College campus, 1001 S. Main St. Now, a portion of that site is currently closed to accommodate reconstruction of GTC’s Lincoln Building.

In addition to artwork sales and display, the Starving Artist Fair includes food, live music, and children’s activities. Also, proceeds from the event are used to fund scholarships for Racine area college students enrolled in art-related degree programs. Visit:
