The annual MCAD Art Sale is the college's largest public event, drawing thousands of people into the college to shop for art—sifting through close to 7,000 pieces created by 400 students and alumni.

In 2015 we introduced “Hot Picks” in order to highlight some of the best and brightest MCAD talent. Look for hot pink ribbons that signify particularly exciting artists to watch, to follow, to collect.
