Spring YART is Coming to Downtown Muncie
FREE PRESS REPORT
MUNCIE, INDIANA (ARTS) - The Spring 2014 Muncie YART will be held on Thursday, May 1st from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, and it is open and free to everyone! RSVP here:
YART is a Yard Sale for Art! We keep the yard sale vibe going by having the sale outdoors and keeping all art priced under $40. YART began in Muncie, Indiana with students at Ball State University and continues to gain popularity in several U.S. cities. The Muncie YART is now held in Downtown Muncie, twice a year, Spring and Fall.
Muncie’s Spring 2014 YART will be held in conjunction with the May 2014 First Thursday Gallery Walk. YART is held in the Old National Financial lot on the corner of Walnut and Charles Streets in Downtown Muncie, Indiana. This community art sale, with a goal of making art affordable and accessible to everyone, brings together artists and art patrons in a casual and unique setting.
All forms of art are welcome! Art of all kinds, by all kinds of artists! YART encourages interaction between artists and the community, hoping to make art more accessible, especially to those who think they cannot afford to buy art for themselves. To this goal, all YART art will be priced under $40!
Each YART Artist will be present throughout YART to meet the public, discuss their art, handle sales personally, and some artists will be making art LIVE at YART!
The Spring 2014 YART will feature over 50 artists with their beaded jewelry, soaps, photography, candles, buttons, oil/acrylic/watercolor paintings, fused glass art and jewelry, prints, knits for children and adults, screenprinted t-shirts, drawings, sculpture, lampwork glass beads, stuffed animals and dolls, clothing, digital art, baby booties, and mosaics; as well as the YART Hands-On Children’s ArtSpace, appearances by the acappella singing group Slyphs & Seraphim, the Cornfed Derby Dames, Muncie Burn Mob, the Blue Sky Carnival Band, Muncie OUTreach, and so much more! Fun for all ages - YART and the First Thursday Gallery Walk are for the whole family!
YART is still accepting artists! There is no cost to vend at YART, and YART does not take a cut from artist’s sales. Artists manage their own sales and need their own display. To become a YART Artist, please email Miss Moth here: [email protected]

YART is an all-volunteer/no-budget event and I, Miss Moth, am very grateful to Cheryl Crowder of the Muncie Downtown Development Partnership for support and the donation of YART poster printing, Old National Financial for the donated use of their parking lot, and to The Artist Within for being great YART neighbors!
