ArtHatch presents its Fifth Annual Art-A-Thon, a marathon of artistic creation to benefit the non-profit art center’s teen program. 25 artists from San Diego County will seek donations to create artwork for up to 24 straight hours from noon Jan. 2nd – noon January 3rd. Patrons are welcome to visit the artists at work at any time during the 24 hour period. As works are finished, they will be added to the ArtHatch gallery space and auctioned off for a one-month period following the event. Proceeds from donations and art sales will be divided between the artists and ArtHatch to help support the centers free art education program for local at risk teens. Art-A-Thon is as much a performance piece as it is an exercise in creativity and endurance. This is a unique opportunity for patrons to experience the creative process of the art they collect first-hand. Painting, sculpture, tintype, and photography will be among the featured media, with participating artists ranging from emerging to seasoned professionals.
