At this festive sale, holiday shoppers and collectors can discover work by emerging and established artists and designers just in time for the gift-giving season. Fine art and handmade objects by approximately 275 MICA students, alumni, faculty and staff will be on sale at the MICA Art Market 2015. Original gifts include jewelry, illustrations, paintings, prints, posters, sculptures, mosaics, stationery, T-shirts, ceramics, book arts, toys and wrapping paper. Visitors can talk one-on-one with artists and designers about their work while enjoying the market's lively atmosphere and supporting the local economy. The event is sponsored by the MICA Alumni Association. A portion of the proceeds goes towards scholarships for MICA students.
