International Portrait Knock Out

THE INTERNATIONAL PORTRAIT KNOCKOUT:

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

June 2nd, 2018

The 1st  round begins at 10:00 a.m. 

The winner is announced at 9:15 p.m. 

   40 acclaimed artists from New York City, Philadelphia, and the surrounding regions come together to compete in this Art meets Sport event.

   Tirelessly rendering over 5 rowdy rounds of live portrait painting, the artists will subject themselves to a process of elimination by a professional jury, in a “Winner Takes All” scenario.

   Each round will have a different concept and objective. The lone victor will be belted, crowned,  and rewarded with a $1000 cash prize and the title of

   “The World Champion of Live Portrait Painting.”

 

   The public is highly encouraged to attend the event in order to support their favorite artists and heckle worthy opponents in public displays of fandom. Music, beverages, and goodies will be on hand as well as coupons from our sponsors so you can hit the town!

 

 ALL OF THE WORK PRODUCED WILL BE FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC IN A SILENT AUCTION WITH A RESERVE PRICE OF $100.00 EACH.

BIDDING BEGINS AT THE END OF THE FIRST ROUND AND THE SILENT AUCTION ENDS AT 9:30 P.M. 

 

   Our mission is to foster a growing artistic community centered around contemporary concerns while creating and sustaining art spaces focussed on presenting contemporary art, supporting emerging talent, and providing community driven opportunities.
