Held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving, the MCAD Art Sale is your chance to buy one-of-a-kind art created by students and recent graduates at unbeatable prices. Now in its twentieth year, the sale is a Minnesota tradition that has generated more than $3,300,000 for emerging artists.
This event has gained a tremendous reputation as one of the nation’s top destinations for affordable, appreciable artwork by leading-edge artists who are creating not only what’s new, but what’s next.
Eye-catching, one-of-a-kind art created by MCAD students and recent graduates at unbeatable prices along with hundreds of eager, local art enthusiasts. Thousands of original artworks are displayed throughout MCAD’s galleries and hallways and represent all media, including, paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, furniture, toys, clothing, jewelry, accessories, and more.
The MCAD Art Sale is the nation’s largest college art sale. Every piece is priced at or below $1,500 and the average price is less than $100. Watch mcad.edu/artsale for a preview of this year’s artwork. All proceeds go directly to the individual artists or to the MCAD Art Sale Scholarship funds.
