In partnership with the City of Wauwatosa, NEWaukee seeks 64 artists to participate in ART 64 presented by North Shore Bank, a four day bracket-style painting tournament taking place in various locations and businesses!
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. The participating 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 in residency at Serendipity Labs in Wauwatosa to exhibit their work.

Hello my name is Melissa Mulvaney. I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 2005 with a degree in Art Education (k-12) and Biology Education (6-12). For the past 15 years, I have taught art in the Tomah School District as an art teacher. I have taught a wide variety of ages and abilities. This has truly made me believe art is for everyone and that we as humans have an innate need to create. I enjoy helping students make connections to their lives, feeling and other content areas through the art making process. I also run an art club for students 3rd through 5th grade with our focus on spreading kindness in our community through their art. The joy and pride students find through helping others is inspirational.
