Save the date: April 10, 2021

First, the Art Alliance and the Riverside Art Museum wish to thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout the last year. Art Market 2020 was to be a spectacular event and we sold out of vendor spaces within a few days.

When we originally postponed Art Market 2020 to September 26 due to the pandemic, we believed we would be safe. However, we heard from the City of Riverside last week that they are unable to move forward with permitting outdoor events until the City and the County move to Stage 4 of reopening from COVID-19 restrictions. This is not anticipated by September. Given this uncertainty, and our desire to properly promote the Art Market well in advance, we have made the difficult decision to forgo our 2020 event and focus our enthusiasm to plan an outstanding Art Market for 2021.

We would like to thank all of our vendors and sponsors for their support throughout all this. If you have not yet received the email/letter we sent out to you with your options, please email riversideartmarket@gmail.com or call Kathy Bocian at (951) 206-0928.

Please save the date for Art Market 2021 currently scheduled for Saturday, April 10, 2021.

*****

The Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum and the Riverside Art Museum have made the difficult decision to re-schedule the Riverside Art Market from April 4, 2020, to September 26, 2020.

We have taken this step in response to the California Public Health Department guidelines and warnings for large gatherings. We cannot, in good conscience, ask people who are in the most vulnerable population groups to volunteer or to attend the Art Market. We are committed to a vibrant, well-attended event that both benefits our artist vendors and the Riverside Art Museum, and can be safely enjoyed by the public. We will deliver on that promise, but on a different date.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall. 

Stay well,

The Riverside Art Museum and the Riverside Art Market Committee

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO JOINED US, INCLUDING THE AMAZING ART VENDORS, FOR THE ART MARKET in 2019! Check out photos here.

In 2020, we're taking the Riverside Art Market to the street!

The Art Alliance is thrilled to announce that, along with first-floor vendor booths in the museum, we’ll also be filling Mission Inn Avenue with vendor booths, art demos, crafts for kids, entertainment, a beer and wine garden, and much more. We expect to draw over 2500 visitors to this free, family-friendly, fun-filled event! 

Our goal is to make this one of the premier art markets in the Inland Empire and by taking it to the street we expect this year to be a big step toward that goal. All proceeds go to support the Riverside Art Museum and last year over $20,000 was raised to support art and culture in the Inland Empire!

We’d like to give a big shout out to the wonderful vendors we’ve had in recent years and encourage anyone who is interested to submit a vendor application. 

With free admission and free children’s crafts and art demonstrations, plus the expansion of the market to Mission Inn Avenue, the Riverside Art Museum and Art Alliance is seeking sponsorships to help make this event a success. We hope you’ll consider supporting this free, community-oriented event.

You must sign and return a waiver. You may submit the waiver by attaching it in the online application when you select your booth (which makes it automatic) or by mailing it to the Riverside Art Museum or emailing riversideartmarket@gmail.com. Mailed or emailed waivers must be received within 5 business days or the booth you have selected will be released. If you share a booth with another artist or artists, submit only one application; however, they will also need to sign and return a waiver.

There is no additional charge for selecting your specific booth, and no additional fee for sharing a booth.

Early Bird Pricing ends February 15. Applications are accepted through April 1.

RAM members receive discount pricing, along with free entrance to the museum.

We will provide white EZ up canopies to all outside vendors (no personal EZ ups are allowed). EZ ups will be set up for all vendors by 7:30 a.m. on April 4. No EZ ups are allowed inside RAM.

Looking forward to seeing you all on April 4th!!!
