On May 13, 2015, The Rex Theater in downtown Pittsburgh will host the area’s first Art Attack, a live competitive painting event that puts twelve artists through three rounds of timed painting in order to crown the evening’s master of the creative universe.
The winner will also get a golden ticket to the championship at the end of the year. All art created during the event will be auctioned off during the evening, with proceeds going to the, ahem…Artists!
Ed Lightcap, founder of Art Attack Pittsburgh, explained about why events like his are important for the city.
Live music with accompanying DJ will also be a part of the evening’s festivities.
“We have confirmed that local Pittsburgh comedian, Davon Magwood will be the emcee of Art Attack Pittsburgh. We will also have a DJ keeping the music flowing throughout the night and two live music acts,” Lightcap stated.
