On April 4, 2019 ArtWins held an artist-focused event at Black, Starr & Frost, generously hosted by Alfredo J. Molina, Chairman and CEO of Molina Fine Jewelers. 5 local Arizona artists spoke, exhibited their art, and made presentations. Each of them participated in ArtPrize 10 last Fall in Grand Rapids, MI.
The artists who presented included Nathaniel Lewis (Phoenix pitch night winner), Saskia Jorda (public vote finalist), Kendra Sollars, (public vote finalist), Diego Perez, and Eddie Sparr. Each of them spoke about their art, their experience at ArtPrize 10, and they all enthusiastically spoke in support of the ArtWins competition here in the Valley of the Sun.
The ArtWins board also announced the Sonorous Desert competition to the community.
The Phoenix New Times published an article about the event here.
