Art competition promoters invite the public to enjoy a fun-filled day of art appreciation at the Chattanooga Marketplace Sunday, June 27. The first annual Renaissance Competition, where the public can cast their votes for Renaissance Man/Woman of the Year, attempts to breathe renewed interest in the visual arts while supporting a worthy cause.

“I hope the Renaissance Competition does for visual arts what shows like Dancing with the Stars and American Idol have done for the performing arts,” said event promoter Lance Charles.

The one-day event opens at 11 a.m. with the arrival of 15 multi-disciplined artist finalists. In addition to the artwork being judged, participating artists will showcase artwork for sale. All competing artwork will be on display beginning at noon when the event officially begins. Public voting and artwork judging continues for the next three hours. The event culminates with a closing ceremony at 3:30 p.m. to announce competition winners.

“I hope the Renaissance Competition does for visual arts what shows like Dancing with the Stars and American Idol have done for the performing arts,” said event promoter Lance Charles.
The art completion and exhibit is free to the public with a $2 charitable donation requested per vote cast. Proceeds from the event, including artists’ application fees and voting fees, benefit the non-profit Siskin Children’s Institute, located in Chattanooga.
