Art Battle is the hottest thing in competitive creativity. Speed painting is taken to the next level with these global tournaments of live art during which 12 artists compete in three rounds of 20 minutes with open materials to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece in real (fast) time. Guests are invited to watch and cheer on their favorite artist. Winners then advance to city, regional, national and world championships.

On Friday, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m., art lovers are invited to view and participate in the Art Battle Phoenix held at FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel. This heart-pounding, working-against-the-clock event is open to all ages. Guests have the opportunity to vote — advancing one lucky champion to the next level. All artwork produced live during the event will also be available for purchase via auction.

Tickets are $15 for early bird purchase (now available), $20 for general admission through Nov. 11 or $25 “at the door” on Nov. 11 via
