Artist and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor Melissa Wyman invites visitors to go head-to-head in a battle of wills to determine the final outcome of a collaborative (and combative) drawing. In a sumo-style drawing session, pairs of artists must push, pull, or escape or outwit each other in order to complete a single drawing of their personal power animals. Each player will be asked to choose an animal to draw, and may come with his or her own partners, drawing tools, and source images or work with the materials and people on site. Prior to the matches, Melissa Wyman will lead workouts and drawing warm-ups, training participants in safe and effective fighting techniques. Physically combative participation is encouraged but not required.
