The Throwdown

Shaking up the traditional silent auction, the Mobile Arts Council has created an event that you don't want to miss! Throwdown 6: Retribution will go down on September 15, 2017, from 6-9 PM at the Temple in downtown Mobile.

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 are coming back from the previous 5 years for a chance at redemption! Our Throwdown 6: Retribution competitors are Devlin Wilson (Throwdown 5), Rando Dixon (Throwdown 4), Ameri'ca Tickle (Throwdown 3), Amanda Youngblood (Throwdown 2), and Nancy Raia (Throwdown 1).They 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 to music by DJ Ron Anthony as well as food, plenty of beer, wine and, of course, MAC's signature cocktail: "The Red Rooster".

The Throwdown 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.
