Holiday Art Sale Set For Dec. 1-5

Published: November 15, 2013

CSULB’s School of Art is celebrating the 46th year of its holiday art sale. From Dec. 1-5, the students and faculty of this nationally-recognized visual arts program will provide a very special holiday shopping opportunity for lovers of art and fine craft. Thousands of unique pieces will be on display and available for purchase in the student galleries. Students and faculty members participate in the sale, with a significant percentage of the proceeds going to support scholarships, guest speakers, supplies and individual program needs. The sale officially begins at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1.

Original works showcase the exceptionally diverse and comprehensive programs offered through the School of Art, the largest academic department on the campus. From photography to fiber, ceramics to illustration, metals to wood work, jewelry to drawing and painting— the art sale features work for every taste and every budget. Last year’s sale broke attendance and sales records and was one of the most popular in the event’s history. Prices for individual pieces are expected to range from $5 to $500.

Sale hours are Sunday, Dec. 1, from 4 to 7 p.m. and Monday through Thursday, Dec. 2-5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with hours being extended hours until 7 p.m. on Wednesday Dec. 4. Historically, patrons have begun lining up two to three hours prior to the opening of the sale in order to ensure the best selection of these one-of-a-kind objects. Cash, check, and Visa are accepted forms of payment.

The holiday art sale takes place in the department galleries and courtyard, located in between the Fine Arts 2 and Fine Arts 3 buildings on the southeastern section of the campus. Parking for the sale is available in Lot 8, off East University Drive. From the parking lots, patrons are asked to follow the directional signs leading to the sale.
