BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- The Northern New Jersey Community Foundation program, ArtsBergen Connect the Dots, will feature artists as gladiators Monday at the Bergen Performing Arts Center.
"Creative Conflicts: Live Art Battle" stars local visual artists painting and drawing in a multi-round live art-producing competition. The artists have two 45-minute rounds in which to complete their pieces in front of an audience.
Audience members will not need to provide a thumbs up or thumbs down, as the center will provide tickets. Tickets then go into a raffle, making the voters eligible to win a painting.
The free event is from 6-9 p.m.
The speakers presenting at the first event are Kadie Dempsey, director of arts in Community/Creative Placemaking with Morris Arts in Morris County, and David Garsia, owner, The Art Factory in Paterson.
Registration is required and can be done online .
Bergen PAC is at 30 N. Van Brunt St., Englewood.
