AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo reports from the beautiful University of Michigan campus for the 58th annual Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, The Original. In this video, watch for an exclusive interview with 94-Year-Old Artist J.T. Abernathy. He’s been displaying and selling his ceramics at this art fair since it first began in 1959. Abernathy grew up in eastern Oklahoma and, after World War II, came to Ann Arbor in 1951 to teach art at the University of Michigan. While his vision isn’t as good as it once was, J.T. still makes a commitment to make pottery. Look for J.T.’s booth within the Ann Arbor Potters Guild area in front of the Hill Auditorium.
