Attendees watch art in action and can take these pieces home by participating in a live auction at the end of the night.

The 10th Annual Throwdown champion, Mayssam Iskandar, will compete to defend her title against this year’s newcomers: Brian Tan, Kimberly Zukley, Ty Tover, Renee Wallace and Janie Brown Johnson.

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! Doors open at 6pm.
