Tin Roof will be hosting the 2019 Battle of The Canvas. Established in 2010, by curator simóne j banks, the Battle Of The Canvas®
was developed as a public art project
while living in Philadelphia with the purpose to create a live art experience for the city. The mission has always been - Collaborate To Elevate
- with the vision for the Battle Of The Canvas®
to always remain an inclusive arts event
that showcases the power of visual and performing arts while implementing social change and community growth. Now, the project has evolved into a pop-up live painting competition
, with a vision to host the event in different cities globally, becoming a more intentional platform for artists to be seen, supported and experienced.
They provide a different dimension to the painter-patron relationship by encouraging local creative communities to witness a full artistic process by watching a blank canvas transform into a work of art, along with the opportunity to invest in the artists of their communities by owning an original piece at the end of the event. Open calls are happening NOW. Apply by March 9th
