Each year, from the vast reaches of our city’s cultural geography, six highly-talented individuals are called to compete for the cup, the title, and the legacy that can only belong to the Best Artist in Milwaukee. There can only be one, and this fact is made only too clear as Blue Dress Cup Talent Analysts scour the city in search of those worthy to test their skills. Only those exhibiting the highest concentrations of Sensitivity, Individuality, Social Capacity, and Patience make the cut. Maybe it can be you.
On September 21st, 2013 the The first annual Blue Dress Cup competition was held, in cooperation with Doors Open Milwaukee. The BDC committee was proud to award the title of ‘Best Artist in Milwaukee’ to Murray, who fought fiercely against his competitors Elisabeth Albeck, Jacob Goudreault, Ashley Coffey, Christopher McIntyre, and Emmett Gross in a battle that will be remembered for years to come.
Blue Dress Cup is a board initiative founded by Sara Caron and led by the Blue Dress Cup Committee, which consists of Chairpersons Brad Fiore and Monica Miller as well as a roster of subcommittee heads including Adam Carr, Jenna Knapp, and Oliver Sydello.
