Virtual Art Fair on the Square
July 12 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art is going online this year with the 2020 Virtual Art Fair on the Square, a two-day event where visitors can shop for art and fine craft from artists in Madison and around the country, support MMoCA with online donations, and purchase the official 2020 Virtual Art Fair on the Square T-shirt, caps, and more.
The Virtual Art Fair goes live on the same weekend that the actual event was to take place, and visitors can browse hundreds of artists’ virtual booths, enjoy music by local performers, watch videos of visitors’ memories of Art Fairs gone by, download kids’ art activities, and buy fun Art Fair merchandise directly from Wildwood Productions.
This year, the Virtual Art Fair on the Square website will showcase the work of over 400 artists who were originally juried into the live event. The artists will be offering fine art and craft, original photography, jewelry, and much more. Many of the artists who are selling their work on the Virtual Art Fair on the Square webpages will also be featured in posts on MMoCA’s Art Fair on the Square Facebook event page, and buyers can purchase their work either by following a direct link to the artist’s website or calling the artist’s studio.
