Art Attack is a single elimination tournament consisting of five rounds in which pairs of paintings will compete head-to-head. Audience response to each painting will be measured by an Applause-O-Meter, with the piece receiving the most applause progressing to the next round.
All auctioned pieces will directly benefit 88.1 KDHX as part of our effort to raise funds and keep your favorite community-supported radio station 100% independent.
The artists have all received a 24x30 canvas from KDHX on which to create an auction-worthy piece of art ... but there's one catch.
Losing works of art face a perilous future in front of the Wheel of Misfortune. This large wheel includes multiple diabolical and imaginative ways of destroying the losing piece. Hugged to death by a Care(lessness) Bear? Chopped in half by a karate master? Torn asunder by a buzz saw?
The wheel decides their fate, unless the audience saves the piece by bidding on it! If the minimum is not reached, the piece will meet its demise without delay (cue bowel-shaking thunder and lightning).
The excitement will continue throughout five nerve-rattling rounds until the final winner is announced. The creator of the winning piece will win $1,000 cash as well as the comfort of knowing that their art will live to see another day. And many lucky attendees will go home with a great piece of art from a local artist, knowing that they've helped support 88.1 KDHX!
The competition will be held on Friday, November 18 at NEO on 2801 Locust Ave, at 7 p.m.
And be sure to keep an eye on KDHX.org for a look at all of the paintings prior to the event.
