Tournament of Artists: Round 1-A

I first got interested in hosting a tournament of artists last year when I saw all the spin-offs of March Madness floating around Facebook. At first, I was going to do just 64 artists but I could in no way choose which 64 should be selected. So, I have a much larger pool. The top artist in each grouping will move on to the next round.  There will also be a few artists who advance in rounds solely on the number of votes despite losing the match-up. Round 1 is broken into several parts so that it isn’t too overwhelming for voters.

Voting will be open through March 15th.

Nicola Pisano

Lorenzo Ghiberti

Andrea Pisano
