Founded in 1968, the annual Starving Artists' Show takes place annually the Sunday after Labor Day. Located on the campus of Mount Mary University, this show features local and national artists who work in pottery, fiber, photography, painting, sculpture, glass, and more. All artwork sold is priced at $125 or less.

The show is sponsored by the Mount Mary Alumnae Association and all artists are selected by a jury of experienced Mount Mary alumnae. The $10 admission fee helps to support Mount Mary students.
