16th Annual Blue Yule! Art the MAC in Dallas

'Tis the season for the Sixteenth Annual Blue Yule at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary! Come support your favorite blue gallery with our fabulous holiday fundraiser featuring original ornaments hand-crafted by artists and patrons. Dance to the rhythms of The Meadows World Music Ensemble! Get your shopping done early at our bountiful silent auction and enjoy beer, wine, food, a bake sale, coffee bar and our infamous Blue Mystery Punch!

Ornament artists will be awarded a $50 prize for their creativity in each of three categories; Most Festive, Most Divine and Most Outrageous. Honorary ornament judges are Susan Matusewicz, MAC Board President, Tina Parker, Director of Kitchen Dog Theater and Lisa Hees, MAC Director.

Festivities begin in the heart of Uptown at 5:30 and lasts until 7:30 on Saturday, December 3.  Early birds will have the best choice of ornaments! Blue Yule supports The MAC by raising funds for 2012's artistic and educational programming.

Admission to Blue Yule is $20.00 for the general public, $15.00 for MAC members and $10 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 28th - December 2nd noon to 6pm daily.

For artists with questions regarding the donation of ornaments, contact The MAC at 214.953.1212, fax 214.953.1873 or email

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 2011 Blue Yule Co-Chairs 
Dana Klein and Susan Matusewicz.
