To the MCAD Community,
The MCAD 20th Anniversary Art Sale was the place to be this weekend judging by the record number of attendees. This year we broke all previous records for attendance, sales and donations to scholarships at the register. We also had the largest number of sponsors for the Art Sale ever.
It was so wonderful to see how amazing the spaces looked with the fantastic DesignWorks branding and the 7,000+ pieces of art covering every wall. We got great coverage from three tv stations and our publicity was in newspapers and magazines across the Twin Cities.
There was a team at the heart of this outstanding experience who put all the elements together for a wonderful event.
Special thanks to the tireless Art Sale Committee:
Ann Benrud • David Bradberry • Hope Denardo • Seth Goodspeed • Meredith Smalley • Brett Smith • Cindy Theis
Thanks to everyone at MCAD who contributed time and energy to making the MCAD Art Sale a huge success. Thanks to the students and staff who worked at the Art Sale and made such a wonderful impression on all the guests. And, of course, thanks to the art that was the centerpiece of the experience and is what will make a lasting impression in people's homes and offices.
Thanks to over the 20 years of MCAD Art Sales more 50,000 works of art are out in the region and beyond and more than $3M has gone to students and young alumni helping launch countless careers. From what started as the "Clothesline Sale" 20 years ago and has grown to the largest student art sale in the country we have greatly increased the visibility of MCAD and its students.
Thanks to everyone at MCAD for supporting this event!
