 This annual outdoor art show is hosted on the west lawn of the Mount Mary campus, the Sunday after Labor Day. It features over 200 local and national artists who work in pottery, fiber, photography, painting, sculpture, glass and more. All artwork is original and priced at $100 or less. Each artist is selected by a jury of experienced Mount Mary alumnae, and the show is sponsored by the Mount Mary University Alumnae Association. With your entrance fee, the association is able to support Mount Mary scholarships.
