The School of Art at California State University, Long Beach is celebrating the 46th year of this annual holiday tradition – the CSULB Holiday Art Sale. From December 1-5, the students and faculty of this nationally recognized visual arts program provides a very special holiday shopping opportunity for area lovers of art and fine craft – thousands of unique and individual pieces will be on display and available for purchase in the CSULB School of Art Student Galleries. CSULB students and faculty members participate in the sale, with a significant percentage of the proceeds going to support student scholarships, guest speakers, supplies, and individual program support. The sale officially begins at 4pm on Sunday, December 1.

Original works of art and fine craft showcase the exceptionally diverse and comprehensive programs offered through the CSULB School of Art, the largest academic department on the campus. From photography to fiber, ceramics to illustration, metals to wood work, jewelry to drawing and painting – the Art Sale features work for every taste and every budget. Last year’s sale broke attendance and sales records and was one of the most popular in the event’s history. Prices for individual pieces are expected to range from $5 to $500.

Sale hours are Sunday, December 1 from 4-7pm and Monday-Thursday, December 2-5 from 10am-5pm (with extended hours until 7pm on Wednesday, December 4). Historically, patrons have begun lining up 2-3 hours prior to the opening of the sale, to ensure the best selection of these one-of-a-kind objects. Cash, check, and Visa are accepted forms of payment.

The 46th Annual School of Art Holiday Sale takes place in the CSULB Art Department Galleries and courtyard, located in between the Fine Arts 2 and Fine Arts 3 buildings on the southeastern section of the CSULB campus. Parking for the sale is available in Lot 8, off East University Drive. From the parking lots, patrons are asked to follow the directional signs leading to the sale.
