InsideOut: The Museum School Art Sale Once a year we let the public in and artwork out — thousands of original, fine art pieces by artists from one of the best art schools in the country. During the 5-day sale, student pieces are intermingled with works by Museum School alumni, faculty and affiliated artists. Purchase from a wide range of paintings, photographs, jewelry, prints, sculpture, new media and much more. Where else can you find photographs by a first-year MFA student around the corner from an Ellsworth Kelly (alumni '48) print? Besides being an exclusive opportunity to add to your art collection, InsideOut is the largest fundraiser for the School. Every purchase helps support School scholarships, making it possible for students to forge new directions in art.
