Artageddon Judgment Day
“Judgment Day” for Artageddon, a combination art competition and fundraiser, is scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center on 645 W. Main St. The single-elimination tournament will have four rounds in which randomly selected paintings will be pitted against one another for the audience to judge by cheering, applauding and just making noise. Losing paintings will be placed on the chopping block, and the host will spin The Wheel of Death to decide how the painting will meet its final end, such as by chainsaw or baseball bat. The only way a painting can be saved is if an audience member purchases it. However, if the wheel hits “Instant Death,” the painting will be destroyed on the spot.
