MIAD Holiday Sale

2019 MIAD Holiday Sale
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 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 and lamps to cards, jewelry, ceramics and more.

Now in its ninth 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 nearly 150 participating students and alumni, while also benefiting MIAD student scholarships. MIAD’s galleries are open during the sale.
