Your favorite art competition is back! Art Face-Off is an art competition between five visual artists who battle it out in front of a jury of virtual viewers at home. This edition partners the Museum with Project Ready, a social justice initiative designed to keep new voters informed and substantially increase voter turnout through civic engagement. Each artist will have 45 mins to create a work that best embodies the theme “My Power, My Community, My Vote” on canvas using their preferred medium.
This event will be hosted by Shennell McCloud (Project Ready CEO) & Darryl Dwayne. Interactive poll questions will test the knowledge of our viewers, as they play and watch along with our host. Special guests include Jacari Harris the Executive Director of George Floyd Memorial Foundation & Kyle Lierman the CEO of Civic Nation.
The winner of the Art Face-Off competition will receive an exclusive partnership deal with The Newark Museum of Art. Their artwork will be converted into merch to be sold exclusively through the NMOA’s Gift Shop on-site and online.
