ArtWorks: The Throwdown
Shaking up the traditional silent auction, the Mobile Arts Council has created an event that you don't want to miss! ART Works: The Throwdown 6 will go down on September 15, 2017, from 6-9 PM. Location TBD.
This one-of-a-kind silent auction/ loud party features a competition like none other seen in Mobile. Inspired by concepts from some of TV's most-loved competition shows, Mobile Arts Council has drafted five artists to compete in a battle of creativity (think Chopped and Iron Chef).
This year's challengers will be given a box containing pre-selected unknown items, a shared supply closet, and 90 minutes to create new works of art. These masterpieces will be sold in a live auction at the end of the evening.
The silent auction consists of items donated by area artists and organizations, ranging from paintings, photographs, ceramics and sculptures to tickets for performances and weekend get-a-ways.
While watching the competition and bidding, party goers can enjoy dancing, food, plenty of beer, wine and, of course, MAC's signature cocktail: "The Red Rooster".
ART Works is the Mobile Arts Council's largest annual fundraiser. All proceeds go towards our mission to support, strengthen and sustain the local arts and cultural community.
