The goal of ART 64 is to create an open art competition in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin that is live, performative, engaging and accessible for both artists and the general public. ART 64 is meant to be a platform for artists and small businesses to build and connect to new audiences.

What Makes this event different?

In four rounds on June 3-6, 2020, artists will be paired to go head-to-head and given two hours to create a work of art on a predetermined theme on a 2’x3’ canvas. Members of the public will be invited to watch the paintings come to life and vote for their favorite paintings on the ART 64 mobile application. The artist in each pairing with the most votes will advance to the next round.
