Gnarly Magazine & Vintage Torque are teaming up to bring you one of the coolest original art shows/auctions in the country. Artists from around the world will be contributing to this event. It takes place on May 4/5, 2018 in Dubuque Iowa.
Every year Vintage Torque Fest has a special Art Show & Auction that benefit Hannah Wells Medical Trust. Hannah has had open heart surgeries and will have to have more.
This auction helps pay a portion of her medical bills.
Each year special panels are produced for the art show. In the past, Rat Fink, surfers' crosses, '32 Ford grills, art deco gas pumps, surf boards, surfers' helmets, & stop signs have been the "canvas" for the participating artists. This year, a human skull measuring 15" wide and 21" tall will be the panel of choice. Only 100 panels are being produced.
Gnarly Magazine wants the best of the best to help out with this event and will be launching a head to head competition for best panel. The winner of the head to head competition will be winning some cold hard cash for their efforts.
Grand prize: $250 cash!
