Whether you’re decorating your dorm room or a massive fireplace mantle, the MCAD Art Sale is the go-to event for buying affordable local fine art. (Snooty art buyers: Leave your monocle at home.) At the two-day affair (Fri. and Sat.), more than 7,000 pieces will be on sale – all by students and alumni from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. All proceeds benefit the artists.
MCAD says the average piece costs less than $100, and no piece is more than $1000.
New this year: You can preview some of the art on Facebook.
