25th Anniversary
Connect. Collect. Celebrate!

We’re back on campus for the 25th Anniversary of the MCAD Art Sale—one of the most beloved destinations for affordable, appreciable artwork by emerging artists who are creating not only what’s new, but what’s next.

Celebrating MCAD students, alumni, and the wider college community, the Art Sale is a tradition that has generated more than $3 million for emerging artists. This year, in honor of the 25th Anniversary, the sale will feature expanded participation by alumni from the last 25 years along with current students and recent graduates.

As always, the MCAD Art Sale is your chance to buy one-of-a-kind creations. Thousands of original artworks will be available in a diverse range of mediums—including paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, furniture, clothing, jewelry, accessories, and more. Following a commitment to supporting students and alumni, 80% of all sales go directly to the artist.

Watch this space for a preview of this year’s artwork. 

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