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.
