Muncie, Indiana – YART is Coming! YART is a yard sale for art. YART began in Muncie, Indiana with students at Ball State University and continues here and in several U.S. cities – a Muncie original. The Muncie YART is now held downtown, at Canan Commons, twice a year, Spring and Fall, on the First Thursday of every May and October.

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. The Spring 2018 Muncie YART will be held in conjunction with the May 2018 Brink of Summer ArtsWalk on Thursday, May 3rd, from 5-9pm. YART will surround the park at Canan Commons, Muncie’s urban greenspace park and amphitheater at the roundabout on South Walnut Street in downtown Muncie, Indiana.

All forms of art are welcome at YART 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 their homes. All YART art will be priced below $40. YART works to enable local creative entrepreneurs to improve the Muncie economy. Shop local, support independents, and enjoy your town.

The last YART featured over 100 artists. 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. This is a great opportunity to enjoy your family interacting with local culture in a dynamic, lively, and relaxed atmosphere. We love kids and there will be lots of fun stuff for them at Canan Commons too!

The Spring 2018 Muncie YART will feature a wide variety of handmade jewelry, photography, clothing, oil/acrylic/watercolor paintings, fused glass, ceramics, knits, pottery, candles, toys, drawings, sculpture, lampwork glass, stuffed animals, digital art, mosaics, Midwest Writer’s Workshop’s Poems While You Wait, LIVE ART and LIVE MUSIC from The Shamaniacs and Ripped From the Roots, and so much more!

Fun for all ages – YART and the First Thursday Gallery Walk are for the whole family!

Miss Moth (YART Director) and the YART Artists would like to thank Cheryl Crowder of the Muncie Downtown Development Partnership and the Muncie Parks Department for their generous support.  YART is an all-volunteer, zero-budget, community event.
