Open Canvas 2007

Open Canvas Logo

The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and the Eisner Museum of Advertising and Design team up for the 6th annual Open Canvas event. 80 artists spend the night creating individual paintings, while spectators watch and enjoy food and drink from 25 sponsoring restaurants and caterers.

I would guess the interest in this event would lie more in the energy of spontaneity and "free" food and drinks than in the artistic end result. But if you think about any other night on the town, you might spend just as much in the company of much more ridiculous people.

And dear god, how is it that a design school and a design museum find THAT logo to be acceptable?

Tickets are $50 in advance, $55 at the door. More info and a full list of artists.

Wow that logo is really terrible.

From what I heard about last years event, you are correct in thinking it's more about the free food, and artistic promotion for the guy that runs the Eisner.
