Annual Holiday Sale Features Affordable Handmade Art and Gifts from MECA Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni

Portland, Maine ~ The 2013 Maine College of Art Holiday Sale will take place on Friday, December 6 from 5pm to 9pm and Saturday, December 7 from 10am to 5pm throughout three floors of Porteous Building. This annual, curated art sale features 64 students, faculty, staff and alumni selling unique and affordable handmade art. In addition to individual vendors, ten department showcases will provide an opportunity to learn more about the various majors at the College and purchase art. Proceeds from the department showcases help students pursue professional development opportunities. Admission is free.

Recognizing the 20-year anniversary of this beloved community event, the College is holding a fundraiser, Celebrate 20, on Thursday, December 5th. This is a limited-ticket event that features a one-night only sale of higher-end priced work by selected Holiday Sale artists. Proceeds from the evening will benefit MECA’s scholarship fund. Tickets are $75 and available at meca.edu/holidaysale or call 207.699.5012.

Through an internship, Graphic Design student Cassie Amicone is building a three-dimensional visual display in the front window that builds on the two-dimensional brand that she created for the event.

Please note that Congress Street will be shut down during the First Friday Art Walk from Brown Street to High Street and shoppers should plan accordingly.

For more information, including a list of all participating vendors, please visit holidaysale.meca.edu.
