description/mission statement:
This group's mission is to waymark any magical creature (fairy, elf, gnome etc.) miniature door that is accessible to the public. Fairies,Gnomes,& Elves are settling in unimaginable places lately. At least, that's what a lot of people would like you to believe. All across several cities, "fairy doors" are popping up. These miniature doors which open into imagined fairy homes; are unsponsored, unauthorized works of public art that have captured the imagination of some cities. A six-inch white wooden door with a carved jamb framed by miniature bricks was the first to appear, outside Sweetwaterz Cafe in Ann Arbor Michigan. Since the spring of last year, twenty more doors have appeared at businesses around Main Street. One human behind the fairy tale is illustrator Jonathon Wright. In 1993, his wife ran a preschool program in their home. On a whim, Wright installed a fairy door in the house. The children's delighted response prompted him to build more. Noting that businesses in Ann Arbor's downtown section were struggling to attract customers, he thought fairy doors might help. "I'd like to see them thrive, and that's part of what I want to contribute," he says. "Something that's lasting and fun and that can maybe revitalize some interest in the downtown area." And now children are leaving gifts for the fairies: pennies, candy, hand-knit socks made with tiny needles, teeny felt hats, and fairy-sized coloring books. These Fairy doors might just pop up in your hometown soon as the Artist is selling the tiny doors to Fairy's, Gnomes, Elves & and all Fairy afficendos.
