Creating Live Paintings

June 26, 2019

Buffalo, NY

A friend sent me a photo of an event that they were visiting in Buffalo, NY called Arts Alive. It is held at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, a museum which is a major showpiece for modern and contemporary art.

For 23 years the gallery has hosted the annual Arts Alive event where participants create living representations of famous works of art for cash prizes. Anyone can and does participate including students, community groups, organizations, families, and individuals. Participants build their stunning replicas—often called tableaux—using people, props, and their creativity.

More than $1,000 in cash prizes is given to winning tableaux. Celebrity judges will select the Best Tableau from the Albright-Knox’s Collection or AK Public Art, Best Craftsmanship, and Most Creative Entry. The awards are presented in each category (Grades K–8, Grades 9–12, and Adult/Family Group). There is also a People’s Choice Award. And, of course, music, art activities, and more is celebrated as part of this special community event.
