The Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor

The Fairy Doors of Ann Arbor are a series of small doors that are a type of installation art found in the city of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The first one appeared in the baseboards of the home of Jonathan and Kathleen Wright in 1993. Subsequently, several others were discovered in their home: in the fireplace surround and two in the kitchen. On April 7, 2005 the first was seen in public on the exterior of Sweetwaters Coffee and Tea. Since then, ten more have shown up around Ann Arbor (as well as a “goblin door” parody), and seven of the original “public” doors still exist.
