The Throwdown is the Mobile Arts Council’s largest annual fundraising event that raises money to fund the organization’s mission to enrich the quality of life in the Mobile area through increasing accessibility to the arts and promoting a vibrant cultural community. More than ever, everyone is ready to participate in face-to-face events, and the Throwdown is the perfect opportunity--enjoy live music by Ryan Balthrop, a one-of-a-kind silent auction featuring wares from local artists, catering by Heroes and the Royal Scam, and of course, libations! Most importantly, come out and support Mobile’s thriving arts community.
The event features five local competitors that have 90 minutes to create original works of art from a shared supply table and mystery items. This year, those in attendance will experience artwork created by Elizabeth Brooks, John Halliday, Mayssam Iskander, Devontae Knight, and Christopher Murray. At the end of the evening, these five works are auctioned and the artist with the highest bidding work is deemed the Throwdown Champion.
