Art Slam

Art Slam is a live art competition in Strong Alley (Downtown Knoxville). Local artists have 3 hours to create one-of-a-kind paintings that are auctioned off to benefit the Art in Public Places Mural Program.

2019 Participants: Jennifer Brickey, Stephen Carcello, Antuco Chicaiza, Curtis Glover, Beth Meadows, Megan Lingerfelt, Kara Lockmiller, Chance Losher, Sarah Moore, Gwyn Pevonka, Mary Stephens-Bogart, James Taylor, Lauryn Darby, and Kayley Hall.

The public is invited to watch this art in action under the lights in Strong Alley and bid on their favorites. Strong Alley is located between Gay Street and Market Square (the highest-traffic and most photographed alley in town with incredible murals). You can enter from either Wall Avenue or Union Avenue.
