Captured: Art Alive 2013
June 4, 2013
Thank you to everyone who participated in and attended this year's Art Alive! On Saturday, June 1, students, teachers, friends, and even some Albright-Knox staff members created living representations of works of art from the Gallery's Collection and beyond for the seventeenth annual living art contest. Nearly 2,000 spectactors turned out in the beautiful weather to enjoy the tableaux, vote for their favorites in the People's Choice Awards, and participate in art activities and games.
Our judges selected our three special awards: Best Tableau from the Gallery’s Collection went to Stanley G. Falk School for Hans Namuth’s Jackson Pollock painting One and Lee Krasner, 1950; the Handyman Award for Best Craftsmanship went to Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart for Keith Haring’s Red Hot + Dance, 1984; and the Off-the-Beaten-Path Award for Most Unusual Entry went to "Keep Art In Your Heart" Art Student Sean M. Kline for Francis Bacon’s Man with Dog, 1953.
For the People’s Choice Awards, St. Christopher School’s re-creation of four works by Charles E. Burchfield was voted Best Tableau: Grades K–8; Springville-Griffith Institute's re-creation of Jackson Pollock’s Convergence, 1952, was voted Best Tableau: Grades 9–12; and Mary Ellen Bossert's re-creation of Adolph Gottlieb’s Dialogue I, 1960, was voted Best Tableau: Adult.
Next year’s living art contest will take place on Saturday, June 7, 2014. It’s never too early to start planning your entry! Learn More and Get an Entry Form
