MCAD Art Sale, Nov 21 & 22

This weekend is MCAD's annual art sale. I will have work there (and for the next 2 years).

The 2008 event takes place on Friday, Nov. 21, and Saturday, Nov. 22 on the first and second floors of MCAD's Main Building.

From paintings, prints and photographs to sculpture, furniture, toys, clothing, jewelry, accessories and more, each purchase directly supports the up-and-coming artist who created the work.

The MCAD Annual Art Sale has gained a tremendous reputation as the metro's top destination for affordable, appreciable artwork by leading-edge artists who are creating not only what's new, but also what's next, with praise and exposure pouring in from the Star Tribune, Mpls.St.Paul, Minnesota Monthly, METRO, City Pages and KARE 11.

The 10th anniversary event in 2007 offered more than 10,000 works by 400 artists.

Friday, Nov. 21: 6 to 9 p.m.
Advance tickets are available for $35 online and by phone. They can also be purchased at MCAD's on-campus book and art supply store, the Art Cellar. Admission is $40 at the door on the night of the event. Valet parking will be available for $5 at MCAD's Main Entrance.

Saturday, Nov. 22: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Bring the whole family! Admission is complimentary on Saturday, with longer hours for leisurely shopping. Our talented instructors offer complimentary art workshops for children throughout the day, so kids can have creative fun while the folks shop.
