The 29th 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 are allowed to drive into the building, but not to their booths.
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.
Additionally, a WAAC fund-raising Silent Auction takes place on Saturday, as well as a fundraiser for the Badger Childhood Cancer Network both Saturday and Sunday. For children 12 and under we have the Young Collectors’ Corner, where children may purchase art without adult supervision and at a reduced price takes place both days.
