Students, faculty, alumni or staff members can choose to affiliate with any of the participating groups, but everyone must be part of a group. Choose a group based on either your major or the predominate material in your work.
Choose a group and fill out the application. After you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email, letting you know you are officially registered. If you do not get a confirmation email you are not registered - please try again. You may be put on the waiting list if we have reached our cap of 275 participants.
You will receive an email on Friday October 12 confirming your acceptance into the Art Market and informing you of your group leader or letting you know you're on the waiting list. There is only enough room for 275 total vendors - however most people that are on the waiting list end up being able to participate in Art Market.
You must be able to sell your own artwork according to your Visa status and have a valid US Tax ID Number. If you have any questions about this please come to the informational meetings on 9/24 or 9/26 and we can discuss your options.
Commission and Payment
All participants must have a United States Tax ID Number (Social Security Number) - the registration data is on a secure website.
A 15% commission will be retained by MICA and will be put towards a minimum of two need based scholarships given out as part of the competitive scholarship process.
Checks will be mailed to your registered address within 6-8 weeks after the sale. If you do not receive your check by Mid February, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Professional Development and Training
In order to foster professional development, all first year participating students must attend a mandatory meeting on Wednesday October 24th at 2:30 in Brown 320. Everyone will get an email reminder with the location. We will discuss copyrights, how to price your work effectively, how to use the inventory sheets and price tag templates for large and small scale work, why you should have a business card and where to get free ones and much more.
Participation at Event
All participants must attend a mandatory training meeting with your group on November 28th at 2:30pm in Falvey Hall (unless otherwise directed by your group leader). If you cannot attend these mandatory meetings due to class or work please contact your group leader. You will be responsible for getting the information from the group leader. Failure to attend or contact the group leader prior to the mandatory meetings will result in your not being able to participate.
Tables & Walls
Tables with oversized black table clothes will be provided for each group. Displays and shelving are allowed to be used but nothing can be hung on the walls. Work out display options with your group. There are four temporary wall units that will be available to certain groups. (i.e. painting etc)
Labels & Templates
A label system for the pricing and identification of your items will be provided to all participants. You must comply with the label system or you will not be allowed to participate. Participants must print out tags on card stock or business cards. Failure to do so may result in not being eligible to participate in the sale. In addition, all participants must use the standard inventory sheet provided for the sale. The inventory list is essential for the accounting purposes and must be completely filled out by the start of the sale. These templates will be posted on the website in November and there will be a tag workshop on Friday November 30 in S117 from 12-5pm.
End of Sale
Any work not removed at the end of the sale on Saturday will become the property of MICA. So please plan to take your unsold items home with you.
