Art Fair on the Square How-to-Collect Breakfast

Art Fair on the Square
How-to-Collect Breakfast
Saturday, July 11  •  8–9:15 am 

MADISON, WI -- Anyone interested in learning how to get more out of their Art Fair on the Square experience and how to build a collection with their art fair finds is invited to attend the Edition MMoCA How-to-Collect Breakfast. The breakfast will be held at the Best Western Inn on the Park (22 South Carroll Street), beginning at 8:00 am on Saturday, 
July 11, 2009.
  
Edition MMoCA, an auxiliary group of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, brings together art enthusiasts and culturally minded individuals with a common interest in expanding their relationship with contemporary art. Edition MMoCA connects its members with unique opportunities to engage with art and each other, while learning the skills of building unique personal collections and supporting MMoCA's permanent collection. 
  
The group will offer one such opportunity related to the 51st annual Art Fair on the Square. On July 11, Edition MMoCA will host a light breakfast with a presentation by Margaret LeMay, former director of the Erdman Art Group and owner of Integrated Art Group in Evansville, Wisconsin. LeMay, who has helped clients start and build art collections for nearly 15 years, will share general thoughts on building a personal collection, as well as specific tips for buying works at Art Fair on the Square.
  
Following the presentation, guests will have access to custom-designed “insiders' guides” to the Art Fair on the Square in a variety of media, including 2D works, 3D works, and jewelry/wearables. Illustrated guides will offer suggestions about specific artists to visit, helpful hints on interacting with artists, and space to take notes at the fair.

The How-to-Collect Breakfast is free for Edition MMoCA members; $15 for non-members. RSVP by Monday, July 6, to Leah Kolb, 608.257.0158 x 221 or leah@mmoca.org. The location is generously sponsored by the Best Western Inn on the Park.
  
Edition MMoCA membership is available to anyone wanting to explore contemporary art while collecting unique experiences and meeting new people! For more information on how to join and the How-To-Collect Breakfast, please visit mmoca.org.

Hours for this year's Art Fair on the Square are: Saturday, July 11 (9 am–6 pm) and Sunday, July 12 (10 am–5 pm).
