We are collaborating with the Hyde Park Arts Association (HPAA), and they will host their “Battle of the Arts” competition bringing a new educational spin on the art making process. Artists will be creating artwork onsite within a certain time frame. This gives the public the opportunity to witness the process that visual artists’ use. The public will be invited to vote for their favorite. There will be three cash prizes awarded. There will be free giveaways, and raffles will be held for prizes.
