Face Off

Artisan and Small Business Studios

Friday, May 3
Admission $5 at the Door (Children 12 & Under Free)

Be a part of an unique event featuring 15 or more artists painting or drawing live models in and around the performance area of the Box Factory for the Arts. Enjoy a drink and refreshments watching the different approaches taken by the artists to create one of a kind portraits. Audience members will be able to bid on the final pieces of art at the end of the night.

If that wasn’t enough of a reason to attend, we will also have a musician and the Community Art Show for the Middle School and High School students on display in our galleries.
