The Art of Fighting 2014

Fight the Good Fight

Go on the offensive for a worthy cause this weekend with The Art of Fighting, a three-day gaming tournament and art exhibit raising money to combat childhood congenital heart disease. Kick off the battle royale Friday, Sept. 26, at Metropolis Comic Art Gallery (1102 Mountain NW) with an art opening at 7pm featuring works inspired by our favorite games, from Street Fighter to Mortal Kombat. Local talent as well as artists from comic art and gaming houses like Udon and Skullgirls unveil paintings, drawings and mixed-media works capturing the excitement of comic art and characters from popular titles. Check the adorably stylized superhero renderings of Christopher Uminga, high-class My Little Pony interpretations by Sara Richard and much more. The event continues with a gaming tournament pitting world-champion special guests against Burque’s own heroes for prizes from big-name sponsors. Saturday night’s festivities include an East-vs.-West Albuquerque grudge match to be streamed live at twitch.tv/nmism. And on Sunday, partake in the warrior sounds of “The Music of Smash” live performance at noon. Last year the inaugural event raised over $4,000. All proceeds go to March of Dimes and Save Babies Through Screening Foundation. For more info and tournament details, viddy metropoliscomicart.com and nmism.com/aof. (Ian Wolff)
