Our shows feature dozens of artists of various disciplines all focused on a single theme.

Throughout the night MR E will spin some awesome music while art lovers browse the art on the walls and interact with the actual artists. A couple times an hour we will do artist interviews on stage to give everyone an inside look into the creative process of the artists.

We also feature drawing contest which we call Pencil Wars. We pass out small paper cards and pencils and have an all out pencil drawing contest with a winner decided by majority crowd vote.Mano A Mano Art Shows are very interactive and fun as the way art and music should be.

What better way to expose the arts than with great music and an awesome atmosphere?We love art, we love music and we love helping the human cause.
