A 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 works created by MIAD students and alumni at affordable prices.

Meet the emerging and established artists and designers who are behind the amazing creations. Gifts range from sculptures, paintings and photographs to jewelry, stickers, greeting cards and more.

Now in its 11th year, the MIAD Holiday Sale draws enthusiastic shoppers and art buyers to Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward. Stop by MIAD’s two on-campus galleries to view the latest exhibitions while you’re here for the MIAD Holiday Sale.

70% of sale proceeds support the participating student artists and designers, and 30% benefits MIAD student scholarships.
