YART is Coming! Again!
YART is a Yard Sale for Art! YART began in Muncie, Indiana with students at Ball State University and continues in several U.S. cities. The Muncie YART is now held Downtown, twice a year, Spring and Fall, on the First Thursday of every May and October – and, for the first time ever, this Winter in December too (in a heated tent)!
The Winter 2015 Muncie YART – a Holiday Yard Sale for Art – will be held in conjunction with the 2015 Tree Lighting Ceremony at Canan Commons on Walnut at the Roundabout in Downtown Muncie, Indiana, on Thursday, December 3rd, from 4-8pm, featuring Santa Claus, Ice Skating, Children’s Train Rides, Music, Ice Sculpture Demonstrations, Fire Pits, and the YART heated tent full of an amazing array of art and gifts!
This community art sale, with a goal of making art affordable and accessible to everyone, brings together artists and art patrons in a casual and unique setting. All forms of art are welcome! Art of all kinds, by all kinds of artists! YART encourages interaction between artists and the community, hoping to make art more accessible, especially to those who think they cannot afford to buy art for themselves and for friends and family. To this goal, all YART art will be priced below $40!
Each YART Artist will be present throughout YART to meet the public, discuss their art, handle sales personally, and some artists will be making art LIVE at YART!
The Winter 2015 Muncie YART will feature a wide variety fantastic holiday gifts of jewelry, breads and sweets, clothing, photography, oil/acrylic/watercolor paintings, fused glass, ceramics, knits, pottery, candles, toys, drawings, sculpture, lampwork glass, stuffed animals, digital art, mosaics, LIVE ART and LIVE MUSIC, and so much more!
Fun for all ages – YART and the holidays in Downtown Muncie are for the whole family!
There is no cost for Artists to exhibit at YART, and YART does not take a cut from their sales. Artists manage their own sales and provide their own displays.
YART is an all-volunteer, no-budget, community event.
