Join us for a saturday night full of live art!

Regular season event winners and All-Stars from Jackson and Grand Rapids return for their chance to become the 2023 Michigan State Champion, and head to the US National Championships in Florida in April!

Artists have 20 minutes to take their canvases from blank to beautiful, battling not only the clock but each other as well in 3 rounds. Watch the paint fly before your eyes and help vote to determine the Winner of the night!

All artwork created will also be available via silent auction.

Be a part of the fun as a spectator, or participate as one of the featured artists by applying online at artbattle.com/artists!

Art Battle® Jackson is an All Ages event with a 21+ bar.




Artists can apply to compete. Also, most events have a ‘Wildcard’ easel, where artists leave their names at the door and we draw at random to pick the Wildcard Artist. To be a potential wildcard artist, just buy a ticket and show up!
