Mission Statement

The annual Art Fair Off the Square and Winter Art Fair Off the Square are the two juried fairs sponsored and produced by the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople, Inc. (WAAC), a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation formed to promote and create contact between Wisconsin artists and craftspeople and the public. WAAC takes pride in having been created and operated by the artists themselves. Along with providing a market for exhibitors, we continue to educate the public about art and provide important one-to-one interaction between artist and buyer.


The Art Fair Off the Square runs concurrently with the Art Fair on the Square (second weekend in July). More than 200,000 people are expected to visit downtown Madison during this two-day celebration of visual art, which has become a highlight of the summer season. The Art Fair Off the Square will be comprised of approximately 130 artist spaces.

It was easy and fun to enjoy taking pictures with the artwork, Madison community, and great vibes. I called them to understand the type of picture criteria they were looking for and got to enjoy the sun while volunteering as a art/community picture taker. After taking pictures that whole art fair on&off the square, I submitted my around 425 photos on Tuesday July 12.
