Register today for the MCAD Art Sale!

Be a part of the nation's largest college art sale!

Hello MCAD Students!

The MCAD Art Sale is one of the Twin Cities' premier art events! Each year, nearly 7,000 pieces of art are submitted from more than 400 participating alumni and student artists. Thousands of works are sold each year, with 80% going back to the artist (the remaining 20% pays for the event). This is your event!

Any current MCAD student or graduate between December 2014 and May 2019 is eligible to participate in the MCAD Art Sale.

As a student, you must first register and review the Art Sale Participation Rules in order to participate. Once you complete the Intent to Participate Form you are officially signed up. Don't wait! Register no later than September 30, 2019. (Your artwork does not need to be fully completed to register, and there is no penalty for signing up now and dropping out later). Only artists who register will continue to receive Art Sale information.

Register today!
