Primary Colourshas announced a few more details about one of its signature programs: Art vs. Art, which pits painting against painting in a battle to the death.
This year's schedule starts with Paint Day on Sept. 6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Garfield Park Arts Center, followed by the Main Event Sept. 26, 9 p.m.-midnight at the Vogue.
On Paint Day, artists have four hours to create a piece using only materials supplied by Prizm: a canvas, brushes and acrylic paints. Artist registration is open to all at primarycolours.org; the fee is $15 online and $20 at the door.
The first round of voting takes place online from Sept. 12 to 25, with the general public invited to pick their favorite three pieces. Top votegetters will make it to the Main Event, when audience voting will determine which painting will advance and which will be destroyed. The winner gets a cash prize of $4,000.
