“Ah, the MCAD Art Sale. The art hunter's dream come true . . . we can spend hours nitpicking through this amazing sale; the size and scope of it is simply, wonderfully maddening . . . Our advice? Wear a nut cup; collectors do not mess around.” –L'etoile

“Each year local art aficionados flock in droves to MCAD's annual art sale. Why? Well, combine hundreds of majorly talented student and alumni artists, over 7,000 works, price points under $1,000 (with most under $100) and you've got the recipe for a rabid, art-buying frenzy.” –Secrets of the City

“MCAD's annual art sale has become a must-stop for those wanting to add to their collection or folks who are just looking for something they love to hang on their wall.” –Pioneer Press
