Welcome to the 56th Annual Art Fair on the Square!
A Grand Celebration of the Arts
The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) is a nonprofit, independent organization that serves and stimulates the art life of the community by creating opportunities for direct experience with works of art, by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas about art, and by offering programs to enhance the appreciation and understanding of art.
On the second full weekend of July each year, MMoCA presents the Art Fair on the Square on the eight blocks surrounding the beautiful State Capitol building. While the fair supports MMoCA, it is also a beloved, annual, public-art celebration that boosts tourism, nationwide visibility, trade, quality of life, and city pride in Madison. Nearly 200,000 visitors from Wisconsin and across the country enjoy a wide range of art, music, dance, family entertainment, and foods in the open air.
Last year, funds raised from Art Fair on the Square allowed MMoCA to…
Engage over 12,000 children in art education programs
Partner with 1,175 artists
Welcome 205,852 visitors to the museum
Ensure that 488,218 people were more connected with contemporary art inside and outside the museum and in the community.
With its extraordinary scale, its tremendous impact on the museum, artists and art enthusiasts, Art Fair on the Square is truly a grand celebration of the arts. Visit mmoca.org to learn more about MMoCA’s events and to continue the MMoCA experience year round.
