Application Deadline for Expanded 
Holiday Art Fair is May 31, 2009
  
MADISON, WI The Art League of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) invites artists to apply for the Holiday Art Fair to be held November 21-22, 2009. The deadline for application is May 31, 2009. Artist may apply online through Zapplication www.zapplication.org or download an application at http://www.mmoca.org/events/holidayartfair/index.php.
  
A longtime Madison tradition, Holiday Art Fair provides shoppers with an opportunity to purchase unique, handcrafted gifts in a stunning architectural space. The fair is an excellent showcase for contemporary fine art and craft during the holiday season. This juried show, featuring distinguished artists from the region, is as sophisticated as its Cesar-Pelli designed setting in downtown Madison.
  
This year, for the first time, MMoCA is working in association with Overture Center for the Arts to host an expanded Holiday Art Fair. The association allows the Holiday Art Fair to feature 100 artist booths­twice as many as in previous years­as well as expand holiday entertainment. 
  
Artists with questions about the fair should call Elizabeth Tucker, project coordinator, at 608-257-0158 x 231.
  
All proceeds from Holiday Art Fair benefit the free exhibition and education programs of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.
