In June 2008, a new form of live entertainment was born. Titled "Art Fight", it placed artists head to head in a competition that was equal parts Pictionary and Pro Wrestling. Now, two years later, the phenomenon known as Super Art Fight returns to their home base of Baltimore, Maryland for a FREE headlining event: SUPER ART FIGHT 7, Live at the Metro Gallery on July 17th, during Artscape 2010!
The event will feature four "art fights", 30-minute bouts pitting artists from throughout the world of comics, webcomics, roller derby and elsewhere. The bouts start with a set topic given to each artist, and then every five minutes, new topics are given to the artists from "The Wheel of Death", a randomized topic generator, featuring suggestions from fans, cultivated at SuperArtFight.com.
In addition, live music will be provided between the matches by Baltimore based band Goodbye New Plans, DJ Sheephead will be turntabling during the fights, and Ross Nover and Marty Day will be providing live commentary.
