Winter Art Fair Off the Square 2021
Time & Location
About the event
The 32nd Annual Winter Art Fair Off the Square is an indoor fair held in the beautiful and spacious Exhibition Hall of the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in downtown Madison. There are 135 booths and artists with a wonderful selection of pottery, paintings, fiber, glass art, wood, photography, jewelry, graphics, sculpture and more. In addition, on Saturday the art festival features a very successful Silent Auction of artwork contributed by our exhibitors.
The Winter Art Fair Off the Square is one of two juried fairs sponsored and produced by the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople, Inc. (WAAC), a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation formed to promote and create contact between Wisconsin artists and craftspeople and the public. WAAC takes pride in having been created and operated by the artists themselves. Along with providing a market for exhibitors, we continue to educate the public about art and provide important one-to-one interaction between artist and buyer.
There is a Young Collectors' Corner where only children under twelve are admitted to purchase artwork of their choosing. Much of the art is the same as in exhibitors' booths but at child-sized prices without adult supervision both days. Musical entertainment ranges from Johnny Chimes to Bluegrass, classical to the Madison Area Ukelele Initiative, with special performances by Madison Suzuki Strings students and advanced piano students of area piano teachers.
