We look forward to seeing you at the MCAD Art Sale Opening Night this Thursday, November 21, 6:00–9:00 p.m. This event promises to be another fantastic evening featuring nearly 7,000 pieces of original art by students and recent alumni. 

Valet Parking
Complimentary valet parking is available at the main entrance to the MCAD Gallery at 25th Street and Stevens Avenue. 

Please plan accordingly—MCAD is located in the Whittier neighborhood near downtown Minneapolis, streets are narrow and increased event traffic often leads to congestion and delays. Additionally, there will be another large event happening in the neighborhood on the same evening. When possible, we encourage attendees to take advantage of ride sharing opportunities.

Ticketing and Check-in
All ticket holders will be on the guestlist; there are no paper tickets. Please check in at the registration desk just inside the Main Building at 2501 Stevens Avenue.

Purchasing Artwork and Supporting Scholarships
All work is “cash and carry” (cash, check, and credit cards accepted) with 80% of sale prices going back to the individual artists. Purchases made at the Art Sale are not tax-deductible and are subject to sales tax. All sales are final. Contributions to the MCAD Art Sale Scholarship Fund can be made at the register.
