Imurj basement battle exhibit

Basement Battle #4

On January 3, 2020, Basement Battle returns: 2 rounds of artists, armed with nothing but black markers, as they battle to create the coolest work possible within 45 minutes or less, on a 3x3 foot panel.

The theme for each round will be revealed seconds before the start of the round so fast thinking and fast working is important!

All the art will be hung immediately after the battle, and will be on display in the Main Gallery at Imurj for the month of January, and available for sale throughout the month!

Apply by 11:59pm on 12/9. No fee to apply
