The current area of the art fair begins at 16th & Talbott, where the property at 16th and Pennsylvania (one street to west) and covering the block to Talbott was purchased after John Herron left $200,000 to the Art Association of Indianapolis which was founded with the help of Mae Wright Sewell, a suffragette, and a force to be reckoned with in the city of Indianapolis. If that name rings a bell with some of you, yes, she is the founder of Kappa Kappa Kappa philanthropic sorority in the state of Indiana that is still going strong today. On Mother's Day weekend, 1956, the fair was born with 15 exhibiting artist/craftsmen and an estimated 1500 visitors.
