Riverwalk Art Battle!
Watch local artists battle it out for your vote in our first ever Riverwalk Art Battle, Friday, August 2nd from 3-6pm! This event is free and open to the public, all ages! Stay afterwards for the Vail Jazz show in the Riverwalk Backyard where we will announce the winners and have an art auction for the work created!
During the Art Battle, experience the creative process first hand as artists work in any medium of their choice during a 3 hour long contest. See their techniques up close and watch their art evolve from beginning to end. Cheer on your favorite artists and give them suggestions during this interactive art event.
Art Battle will take place on the East end of Riverwalk. Check in when you arrive at Alpine Arts Center for a map, voting tickets, and special coupons from participating businesses! Then browse the streets for artists at work (or inside the businesses in case of inclement weather), listen to live music by Vail Jazz's Justin Allison throughout the Art Battle, and enjoy meeting artists from the community at their finest!
At 6pm sharp when the contest is over, artists will bring their finished pieces down to the Riverwalk Backyard for the Vail Jazz concert. Crescent City Connection will be brining their soulful creole funk to culminate the Art Battle with a great show! A silent auction for the artwork will be open until the intermission, when Art Battle winners will also be announced!
