|art-OFF is an interactive art competition presented in coordination with Second Saturdays Art Walk.|
Inspired by reality television shows such as Iron Chef, Chopped, Project Runway, and Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, COAHSI will choose five teams of NYC-based artists to face-off at art-OFF, a monthly competition kicking-off Second Saturdays Art Walk starting in March and running through June.
At each event, a secret material will be revealed to those in attendance and each team will have an hour to create a work of art related to a theme chosen at random at the start of the event. The competitors will be given access to limited resources to complete their work of art. After the hour is up, popular vote will decide which team will not return the consecutive week.
The team that remains after four weeks will receive a cash prize of $400 AND a snazzy championship belt!
