Abstract
Shot by JoAnn Elam in 1983 at the Palmer Square Art Fair in Chicago, this footage shows the participants of the fair interacting, playing music, and selling various artifacts outside. Slightly out of focus, these images nonetheless capture Elam’s experience in the crowd, with her camera panning over the people and spinning around until something catches her eye, like the conductor of a band, her husband Joe Hendrix, or some painted portraits on sale. Other elements in this collection, mainly Palmer Square Art Fair and Palmer Square Art Fair ‘85, also focus on this community event.
