Two Off Campus Events to Know About

Lehigh Valley Art Wars – Allentown Brew Works, April 20th 7-10pm

Lehigh Valley Art Wars are live events, held in different cities and towns throughout the Valley. The goal is to provide an entertainment experience by getting the artist out of the studio and sharing their creative workflow with an audience. At each battle, the artists have two hours to create their piece of work based on a theme provided. The artwork is then voted on by a combination of the audience and jury. Two artists from each battle go on to the next round, culminating at the grand finale where four artists will compete for the grand prize.

Because of last year’s enormous success, Art Wars decided to have an artist Throw-Down, where every artist who wants to become an Art Wars Warrior will have a chance to participate.

All they need to do is:

  • Pre-register by emailing
  • Bring a canvas, supplies, easel, 6×6 drop cloth
  • And encourage as many people to show up for the Throw-Down to root them on!

Sixteen of the Art Wars Warriors will be chosen by votes, four will be chosen by secret judges. You must be 16 years of age to compete.

Tickets are $5.00, and each person in attendance will get one vote.

All of the artwork created during the throw down will be sold during a silent auction that evening benefiting the artist and Art Wars. For more information about the Lehigh Valley Art Wars, see this link.
