"Game Show" & Artist Wrestling League: "Tag Team Tandemonium"

"Game Show" features two- and three-dimensional pieces and performance art from several of Columbus' leading artists - all in celebration of the "game." That includes a super-sized interactive game visitors can actually play during the opening from 7-10 p.m. Friday.

Taking place outside The Vanderelli Room is the second installment of Artist Wrestling League - a wild and ridiculously fun live painting competition where local artists have created wrestling personas and paint as such. For this AWL event, regular folks have created their own tag teams - and were highly encouraged to don costumes - to take on a tag team from the League. AWL takes place from 7-10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
