Each November, the spaces of MMoCA and the Overture Center for the Arts are transformed as nearly 100 artists and specialty food vendors come together with thousands of visitors to kick off the holiday season with cheer. The 2016 Holiday Art Fair will present fine art and craft from around the country, as well as local and gourmet treats, a silent auction, performances by local art organizations, and the popular Rediscovered Treasures & Art Sale. This festive event is one of MMoCA’s most important annual fundraisers, providing crucial support for exhibitions and education programming.
