‘Tis the season…
for the 18th Annual Blue Yule!
Come support your favorite blue art space with our fabulous holiday fundraiser featuring the infamous and highly anticipated ornaments hand-crafted by artists and patrons alike. Merriment will abound in the heart of Uptown from 6 until 9pm on Saturday, December 7.
For our friends with the busiest holiday calendars, let Blue Yule serve as your one stop holiday extravaganza! Surrounded by treats from our favorite restaurants around town, come unwind with our infamous Blue Yule Mystery Punch that’ll make you believe in Santa again, and dance till you drop to DJ Mark Ridlen. Best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to buy hand-crafted ornaments as gifts or to hang on your very own tree. Holiday shopping is made even easier at our bountiful silent auction organized by our very own MAC Professionals + Artists Collective (MAC PAC)!
Not only is Blue Yule The MAC’s favorite holiday tradition, it is our most significant fundraiser with all proceeds benefitting 2014 Artistic and Educational Programming. Next year will feature exhibitions by local and national artists such as Masami Teraoka, Val Curry, Suzanne Anker and the Core Residency Program of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Funds raised at Blue Yule benefit educational programming that is always free and open to the public throughout the year. This past year, The MAC hosted almost twenty Art Talks programmed in conjunction with exhibitions, and in collaboration with local organizations such as the Writers Garret and the highly respected Dallas International Film Festival.
See you on December 7 for the party that will live in infamy! Come and let loose, get festive with friends and family, and give back to your Dallas art community.
