If you’ve never experienced the Throwdown, you don’t know what you’re missing! In its eighth year, The Throwdown is the Mobile Arts Council’s (MAC’s) largest fundraiser of the year. Whether you’re an arts enthusiast or just enjoy a great time, this event has it all. The Throwdown consists of a live art competition between five of Mobile’s finest local artists, an all-inclusive silent auction, live music by Rogerwood featuring Roger Fritz, cold spirits, and catering by Heroes and The Royal Scam, with desserts by The Simple Greek.
This year Anna-Marie Babington, Mary Elizabeth Kimbrough, Brandin Stallworth, Patrick Tucker, and Ginger Woechan will have 90 minutes to create an original piece of art. At the end of the evening, these one-of-a-kind works will be auctioned off, and the artist with the highest bid will take home the title of 2019 Throwdown champion.
This year’s event will take place on Friday, September 20th, from 6 until 9 p.m. at the USS Alabama’s Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 the day of and can be purchased at here or at www.mobilearts.org.
Come out and support the arts! All proceeds will go towards MAC’s mission to enrich the quality of life in the Mobile area through increasing accessibility to the arts and promoting a vibrant cultural community.
