MCAD Art Sale

Held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving, the MCAD Art Sale showcases nearly 7,000 pieces of art from more than 400 participating alumni and students. This is not a gallery show: the Art Sale welcomes 4,000 art buyers and collectors from the greater Twin Cities community to purchase art from emerging artists and designers every year.

All current MCAD students are eligible to participate and MCAD alumni are eligible to participate in the first 5 art sales following graduation.

The MCAD Art Sale is here for you: MCAD students and eligible alumni. MCAD staff will work to help sell whatever you are working on, regardless of your major, field of study, or profession. Paintings, illustrations, movies, t-shirts or branded clothing items, hats, buttons, stickers, notecards—just ask! Email

The MCAD Art Sale supports the professional development of MCAD students and recent graduates through a public sale of original student and alumni artwork. The sale directly benefits the MCAD students of today, while any scholarship contributions support the MCAD students of tomorrow.
