Imagine shopping a juried art fair with skilled artists exhibiting from around the country, with wine or a warm beverage in hand, and live seasonal entertainment... That's what you can expect and more at the MMoCA Art & Gift Fair this November 17 and 18, the weekend before thanksgiving. Inside MMoCA and the Overture Center, enjoy a fun-filled weekend of relaxed shopping at nearly 100 booths filled with art, gourmet food, and specialty gifts; wine and tasty beverages at two cash bars, live music, dance performances, and other attractions for the whole family. To add to the festivities, the MMoCA Art & Gift Fair will once again kick off Shine on Madison, the annual six-week celebration of the holiday season downtown, which includes an outdoor market, light displays and more.
