The action-packed SMoCA Lounge event Arm Wrestling for Art returns this summer! The premise is simple: with a little sweat, information and determination, you could go home with a painting by artist James Marshall (a.k.a. Dalek), who recently completed the colorful murals in the Lounge, SMoCA’s retail store and outdoor courtyard. First you’ll get a lesson in art from Curator of Contemporary Art Emily Stamey, then you’ll learn how to arm wrestle from a fitness expert and owner of Ultimate Body Bootcamp Richelle Melde, and finally, you can sweat it out with your fellow community members for a chance to win an original work of art!

What’s more, all proceeds from the ticket sales of this event go to fund the Good ‘N Plenty Artist Award (coming up on Aug 29).

And lending a helping hand to make this event POW is… Scottsdale Public Art!
