Summer of the Arts continues to provide interactive opportunities this year and the latest is the Holiday Thieves Market, presented by MidWestOne Bank, which will be going virtual!
The event was originally scheduled for December 5-6 at the Coralville Marriott. Now, shoppers will be able to view and purchase artwork from our artists through our virtual platform beginning at 10 AM on Saturday, December 5th. The on-line marketplace will now be open through December 31st, so there’s plenty of time to choose the perfect gifts for your friends, family, or yourself! This new platform allows attendees to purchase from several different artists and pay at one time. The online market can be accessed through our website at www.summeroftheARTS.org.
You’ll see many of your favorite artists, some who have participated in the Holiday Thieves Market for over 20 years. We currently have representation from a wide variety of mediums: ceramics, drawing, fiber, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography and wood.
The Holiday Thieves Market has taken place for over 50 years and although we couldn’t meet in person this year, we still wanted to provide this unique opportunity for our artists and attendees. According to executive director Lisa Barnes, “The Holiday Thieves Market is a staple in Iowa City and so many people plan on doing their holiday shopping at this event the first weekend in December. The Thieves Market allows people to meet the artists and learn about new work while finding the perfect item. We are pleased to be able to continue the tradition in a virtual setting this year.”
