Art VS Art!

Some art will die. Save the art. Infamous from coast-to-coast, Art vs. Art is a winner-take-all painting competition with a twist. It’s an entirely different atmosphere for an art show with musical entertainment, revelry, and the ultimate in audience participation.  Artists compete head-to-head for the huge $4,000 cash prize… and you judge. The winner is determined by audience vote; the loser faces the Wheel of Death unless someone’s generous purchase can save the painting from a ruinous fate.  See last years action on YouTube!  More details at ArtVSArt.net
