‘Tis the season for the Seventeenth Annual Blue Yule at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary! Come support your favorite blue art space with our fabulous holiday fundraiser featuring original ornaments hand-crafted by artists and patrons. Get your shopping done early at our bountiful silent auction presented by our very own MAC PAC, and enjoy champagne, wine, beer, treats, and our infamous Blue Mystery Punch!
A distinguished committee of revelers will award MAC PAC memberships to artists displaying superior creativity in each of three categories — Most Festive, Most Divine and Most Outrageous. Good luck to all!
Merriment will begin in the heart of Uptown at 5:30pm and last until 7:30pm on Saturday, December 1. Early Birds will have the best choice of ornaments! Blue Yule supports The MAC by raising funds for 2013 artistic and educational programming.
Underwriting assistance is critical to the success of Blue Yule. There are a number of participation levels available. For more information contact Jessica Iannuzzi Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the underwriting page on The MAC’s website.
Admission to Blue Yule is $30 for the general public, $25 for MAC members and $20 for students and teachers. Admission includes all beverages, food, silent auction, music and the wildest ornaments in town. Remember, the more you put into having fun now, the less we’ll have to wheedle and beg later on.
All artists who donate an ornament will receive a complimentary Artist Level membership to The MAC. Drop off dates for the ornaments are November 26 – November 30 noon to 6 p.m. daily.
For artists with questions regarding the donation of ornaments, contact The MAC at 214.953.1212 or email@example.com.
As always, we will need plenty of help with preparations as well as on the evening of the party. If you would like to volunteer, please contact LauraLee Brott at 214.953.1212.
The MAC sends a special thank you to the 2012 Blue Yule Co-Chairs Susan Matusewicz and Dana Greenberg.
