Three years ago, John Wysocki stood looking at the manicured grounds of the Lawrence Visitor Center at 402 North Second Street in Lawrence. I thought, Gee, this is a great place to hold outdoor events, he tells the Pitch.
Thats how Wysocki came up with the idea of the Lawrence Art Market
at the center.
We combined two approaches to the art market this year, Wysocki says. One is a typical art fair, where the artists set up a tent sale. The second is a European-style car-boot sale, whereby people drive their vehicles to the site and display and sell their works from the trunk or adjacent to their vehicles. Thats why weve adopted the word bazaar
to characterize the event this year. The market is held rain or shine from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and every fourth Saturday through September.
