Art Fight is New Mexico’s longest-running and best live art competition. Many artists enter, but there can only be one winner and the public is the one who gets to decide.
On Friday, August 23 an Art Fight event will be held at Tractor Brewing Co. in Wells Park. This upcoming Art Fight is called “Internationalism Art Beyond Borders” and there will be about 10 to 15 artists competing within three hours.
When people buy a beer, they receive a ticket and vote for the work in progress. Then the art that is produced at the end of the night will be auctioned off.
The event centers around the fact that ideas, art and people can not be contained by artificial imaginary lines in the sand. It’s also meant to celebrate the differences in cultures and art. Some of New Mexico’s best artists will be creating live while the public votes on their favorite piece at the end of the night.
