Remember that one scene in the first Christmas episode of Arrested Development where the Bluth family participated in Living Classics, an art event where people recreate famous paintings? Well the Albright-Knox is hosting a similar event called Art Alive on Saturday, June 7th on the Lincoln Parkway side of the museum.
Most of the 30 groups of people participating will do so with families or school groups. Some of the artists represented this year will include Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Norman Rockwell. The works will be judged by the difficulty of the work chosen, craftsmanship, and creativity. The awards include Best Tableau from the Albright Knox’s collection, The Handyman Award for Best Craftsmanship, and the Off-the-Beaten-Path Award for Most Unusual Entry. The spectators will be asked to vote on a people’s choice award as well.
“This event is not only for the participants, but also is fun for the thousands of people who come to look at the living art creations,” said Jessica DiPalma, one of the organizers for this event. It runs from 12 to 2 p.m. and is free to the public.
