The 14th annual MCAD Art Sale unveils collections of paint-strewn papyruses, photographs, and graphic prints by students and recent graduates. Held every year the weekend before Thanksgiving, the art sale has generated more than $1,000,000 to support emerging artists and underprivileged smocks. The frenzy of opening-night festivities begin with complimentary beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m., followed by remarks and interpretive shadow puppets by MCAD President Jay Coogan. At the strike of 6:45 p.m., visitors nab up to one wall adornment every 12 seconds, while brushing eyes over landscapes of original opuses and opening their wallets faster than their neighboring collector. All attendees retrieve their tickets through will call only. Proceeds directly benefit individual artists or the MCAD’s Art Sale Scholarship fund, and guests can purchase masterpieces with cash, check, credit card, and miniature portraits of President Andrew Jackson.
