MIAD Holiday Sale

MIAD Holiday SaleA holiday tradition held every year during the first weekend of December, the MIAD Holiday Sale is your opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind art and design work created by MIAD students and alumni at affordable prices.

Meet the emerging and established artists and designers who are behind the amazing creations, and shop for work in all media — from sculptures, paintings, photographs and furniture to cards, coasters, jewelry, handbags, ceramics and more.

Now in its eighth year, the MIAD Holiday Sale draws more than 1,000 visitors to MIAD’s campus in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. Major proceeds from the MIAD Holiday Sale support the more than 120 participating students and alumni, while also benefiting MIAD student scholarships. MIAD’s galleries are open during the sale.
