For the 16th consecutive year, The McKinney Avenue Contemporary celebrates the holiday season with one of the most unique fundraisers in Texas, The Blue Yule Artist’s Party and Ornament Sale. Blue Yule is a fundraising event that keeps The MAC vibrant through these tough economic times. Join in the celebration by creating and contributing your most divine handmade ornament(s) to Dallas’ most original holiday fundraiser.
This year’s party is scheduled for Saturday, December 3rd from 5:30 – 7:30pm. The evening will feature a tasty treats, the traditional Blue Yule mystery punch, music, a silent auction and an amazing assortment of hand made ornaments. Come mingle with fans and friends, and kick off the holidays while doing a good deed for your favorite art space.
We will also be featuring LIVE MUSIC by the Meadows World Music Ensemble! Hot drumming and imaginative improvisation are a hallmark of the Meadows World Music Ensemble. Directed by Jamal Mohamed, the group performs on a variety of exotic percussion instruments from Africa, Asia and the Middle East as well as traditional Western instruments such as violins, keyboards and guitars.
As a member of the Dallas art community, you know that Blue Yule is one of the major funding sources for The MAC and we have enjoyed generous participation from dedicated artists and friends both locally and nationally. We need YOUR help to continue the Blue Yule legacy! Drop off dates for the ornaments are November 28th -December 2nd noon to 6pm daily. Everyone donating an ornament receives a one-year Artist Level MAC membership.
This is the 16th year for a silent auction at Blue Yule – gift certificates from restaurants, hotels or personal services are especially fabulous.
Blue Yule is one of our favorite MAC traditions, so ornament or no ornament, come celebrate the season with music, spirits, laughter and, of course, those fabulous one-of-a-kind holiday creations.
