Deadline: 9 Mar 2020

A concept by NEWaukee’s Chief Idea Officer, Jeremy Fojut, the first ever ART 64 painting tournament is coming to Wauwatosa, Wisconsin on June 3 – 6, 2020.

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.

ART 64 Artist Benefits

Participating ART 64 artists will each receive a $50 stipend, their 2’x3’ canvas per round, easel, and drop cloth. The final 32 artists will each receive $100, the final 16 artists will each receive $150, and the final eight (8) artists will each receive $500. In the last round, eight artists will compete for a $20,000 grand prize and an artist residency at Serendipity Labs in Wauwatosa to exhibit their work.

Following the tournament (June 3-6, 2020), NEWaukee will hold all paintings from the tournament for 30 days of exhibition in locations in the city of Wauwatosa. NEWaukee and ART 64 Advisory Council will determine uniform sale price for works. If sold, artists will receive 70% of sale and 30% commission will go to the City of Wauwatosa. If unsold after 30 days of exhibition, artists can claim works from NEWaukee (any shipping fees are the responsibility of the artist). If artists do not claim their artwork within 5 business days, the artist waives their right to their artwork and it will become the property of City of Wauwatosa to donate, repurpose, or discard.

About NEWaukee

Through programs and initiatives, NEWaukee motivates participants to look critically at the place in which they live, realize its potential, and empower folks to shape their own community.

This practice requires sincere thoughtfulness about inclusion and deep investment in network development prior to the production of a new program or initiative. The result of this style of work allows for meaningful buy-in from key constituents. Whether it’s engaging a specific demographic, attracting new employees, creating deeper engagement with constituents, or driving new and innovative ideas, NEWaukee’s unique method has a proven track record of success.
