MUNCIE, IN—YART is a Yard Sale for Art. YART began in Muncie, Indiana with students from Ball State University and continues here and in several U.S. cities. YART is a Muncie original.
The Muncie YART is now held downtown, at Canan Commons, twice a year, (Spring and Fall,) and coincides with ArtsWalk. The Fall 2023 Muncie YART is scheduled for the evening of Thursday, October 5th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
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. You can find YART and LIVE music performances at Canan Commons, Muncie’s great urban greenspace park and amphitheater by the roundabout, and along South Walnut Street in Downtown Muncie, Indiana.
All forms of art are welcome at YART. 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 and their homes. To this goal, all YART art will be priced below $40. Shop local, support independents, and enjoy your town.
The last YART featured over 150 artists. Each YART artist will be present throughout YART to meet the public, discuss their art, and handle sales personally. Some artists will be making art LIVE at YART.
The Fall 2023 Muncie YART will feature a wide variety of handmade jewelry, photography, clothing, oil/acrylic/watercolor paintings, ceramics, stuffed animals, drawings, knits, pottery, candles, toys, sculpture, glass, digital art, mosaics, LIVE ART/ LIVE MUSIC, and more.
