Philadelphia Art Wars – “Throw Down” at Blick (Philadelphia, PA)

This Deadline Expired: Friday, January 26, 2018

Philadelphia artists, it’s time to grab your supplies, rally the troops and prepare for battle! The 2018 Art Wars is calling all local artists ages 18 and over to compete in the first ever “Throw Down” at the Blick Art Materials store on Saturday, January 27th at 2:00pm. Free for the public to attend, Art Wars is a series of live art competitions that present the creative process as a form of entertainment, and allow artists to gain exposure, earn income and connect with admirers.

During the Art Wars Throw Down, competing artists will be given a theme and two hours to create a piece of art that inspires the audience to vote them into the battles. The event is open to any amateur, aspiring or professional artist, and they are required to bring their own art supplies, a 4’x4’ drop cloth, an easel/table and a substrate to create on.

Voting at the Throw Down is $5 per person and is used to grow the artists’ grand prize fund. The top 16 artists from the Throw Down will enter in a three-round tournament held at various bars and restaurants in Philadelphia for a shot at the grand prize of over $1,000!
