The Throwdown

The Throwdown is the Mobile Arts Council’s largest annual fundraising event. Proceeds go towards supporting our mission: to enrich the quality of life in the greater Mobile area through increasing accessibility to the arts and promoting a vibrant cultural community.

For the past eleven years, local artists have sought out to compete in this unique live art competition. The event features ­five competitors that have 90 minutes to create original works of art from a shared supply table and a mystery box. Attendees watch art in action and have the opportunity to take these pieces home by participating in a live auction, emceed by WKRG’s Peter Albrecht, at the end of the night. Additionally, the 10th Annual Throwdown champion, Mayssam Iskandar, will compete to defend her title.

Interested in competing in this year’s competition? Sign up online here by June 21st!

The evening also offers a silent auction with one-of-a-kind items that are locally crafted, food by Heroes Sports Bar & The Royal Scam, entertainment by Disco Lemonade, and flowing libations!
