MCAD's 26th Annual Art Sale



MCAD's 26th Annual Art Sale


The MCAD Art Sale is one of the most anticipated events in the Twin Cities. It’s your chance to mingle, peruse, and buy one-of-a-kind creations from MCAD artists who are creating not only what’s new, but what’s next. Thousands of affordable artworks will be available in a wide range of mediums—including paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, furniture, clothing, jewelry, accessories, and more.

Celebrating MCAD students, alumni, and the wider community, the Art Sale is a tradition that has generated millions of dollars for emerging artists. Following a commitment to supporting students and alumni, 80% of all sales go directly to the artist.

Tickets go live on September 26, and stay tuned for a preview of this year’s artwork!

Please note: The Art Sale is a cash-free event. Debit/credit cards only.
