This year, MIAD’s annual Parent/Partner Day on December 7 is part of MIAD’s Winter Weekend. All parents, students and alumni are invited to participate in the activities. These include the fourth annual Student/Alumni Art & Design Sale December 5 – 7 – an event eagerly awaited by the Milwaukee community – and Parent/Partner’s day of roundtables, workshops, tours and demonstrations on December 7. The Third Ward’s Christmas in the Ward activities are also that weekend, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Please encourage your student to participate in the Student/Alumni Art & Design Sale through the link in their River Rat e-newsletter, and watch for more information for parents on engaging with the entire MIAD community.
