THE 10TH ANNUAL THROWDOWN
September 16, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
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, a one-of-a-kind silent auction, food catered by Heroes Sports Bar & Grille and the Royal Scam, and of course, libations! Most importantly, come out and support Mobile’s thriving arts community. For the past ten years, local artists have loved being asked to compete in this live art competition. 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. The 2022 event marks the first Throwdown since 2019 and the Mobile Arts Council is gearing up to make this the best event yet. The 10th Annual Throwdown will take place 6-9 pm on September 16, 2022, at the USS Alabama, Battleship Park’s Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion. 2022 event sponsors include the Mobile County Commission, Noblet Dentistry, New Horizons Credit Union, Heroes Sports Bar & Grill, The Royal Scam, Hackbarth Deliveries, Alabama Public Radio, 1702 Real Estate, Showbiz Theatrical Services, the Mobile Rundown, and Medicare Progress.
