Why We Created Artists Sunday

In short, we want all working artists to sell more of their art. We aim to help through a unified campaign, partnering with artists, non-profit organizations, municipalities and sponsors nationwide.

We created Artists Sunday to give artisans and craftsmen increased exposure with consumers and the media across the country, during the busiest shopping holidays of the year. Artists Sunday promotes the purchase of original, creative arts and crafts from individual artists and artisans.

In short, we want all working artists to sell more of their art. We help do this through public relations, social media, and partnering with artists, artist communities, municipalities and sponsors nationwide. Artists Sunday is a voice for independent artists during the holiday season; a national brand, collectively supporting independent artists nationwide. Review our Artists FAQ.

Taking place during the largest shopping weekend of the year, Artists Sunday follows Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, the day before Cyber Monday, over the Thanksgiving weekend. Artists Sunday 2020 is November 29, 2020.

Art and craft sales are fragmented across the country. Individual artists promote their own work and local communities, artists groups, art councils, churches, chambers of commerce, and other local support groups can help promote artists. But by uniting under a unified umbrella message, we can increase awareness for artists across the country that much further.

Artists Sunday is a unified rallying cry, a movement, a national marketing message that promotes art as commerce, providing individual communities and artists across the country the opportunity to unite together to promote the giving of artist-created gifts during the busiest shopping weekend of the year.

We are a national campaign encouraging shoppers to purchase from artists, and give unique, original and handcrafted items as gifts for the holiday season, rather than manufactured and prepackaged goods.

By November 29, 2020 (Artists Sunday 2020) our goal is to have thousands of Artists and hundreds of non-profit community organizations and municipalities (the Artist Sunday Partners) participating in the first year.
