MMoCA Holiday Art Fair

We love the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art's Holiday Art Fair. Sure, we'll be displaying our candles there this year for the first time, but our appreciation for the museum runs deeper than a sales opportunity.

We've both spent the majority of our professional careers helping artists. We've worked at two online art companies together helping artists market their work and share it with the world. We've dabbled in our own creations, including candles, and believe that art and the opportunity for all people to enjoy, contemplate, and interact with it--no matter how big or small--makes the world a better place. MMoCA provides Madison residents and visitors with a unique opportunity to experience the best in contemporary art.

Since 1901, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art has provided free exhibitions and education programs for city residents and visitors. The museum provides an exhilarating setting for the presentation and conservation of modern and contemporary art. Programs like MMoCA Nights and Rooftop Cinema, special events like Design MMoCA and Hair Affair, and exhibitions featuring esteemed modern and contemporary artists, have made MMoCA a favorite downtown destination.

The Holiday Art Fair is particularly important because it helps ensure that everyone has access to great art. "Events like the Holiday Art Fair allow MMoCA to be an admission-free museum. With the funds raised at the fair, MMoCA can offer the Madison community free exhibitions and education programs that engage people in modern and contemporary art," says Annik Dupaty, Director of Events and Volunteers.

So we hope you'll come on down to the fair this weekend and check out the Reek Havoc booth, and support the 70+ artists and craftspeople who will have work there for purchase. But don't forget to check out the year-round offerings of MMoCA--it's a great place to experience art!
