Ornament Drive at The MAC!


Friday, December 5th | 5:30-7:30



Dear Friends,

As we wrap up our 20th anniversary celebration, including  the second amazing retrospective exhibition, which opened on Saturday, November 8, we are now gearing up for the 19th Annual Blue Yule Artists Party and Ornament Sale onFriday, December 5 from 5:30  – 7:30. Not only is Blue Yule our favorite holiday tradition, it is our most significant fundraiser with all proceeds funding The MAC’s 2015 Artistic and Educational Programming. Eat, drink, mingle, and bid on items in a bountiful silent auction. This year enjoy live music by Denton’s finest bluegrass band Boxcar Bandits and cocktails provided by Bombay Sapphire!

Founded by the late great arts patron Nancy Hanley, Blue Yule showcases a fabulous array of ornaments from emerging and established artists alike. We invite you to create and donate a hand-made ornament – or two or three – for this important fundraising event and help us to continue the services The MAC provides to the Dallas community. Funds raised from Blue Yule benefit all of our educational and artistic events – free and open to the public throughout the year. The MAC rewards those who contribute an ornament with a one-year Artist Level Membership to The MAC ($30 value).

Ornament drop-off dates are December 1-2 from 11am-6pm and December 3-4 from 11am-9pm.
It’s not too late to be good!
Start working on yours today!
