Great art can fetch millions of dollars. And now even awful art can win you a prize: art supplies to hone your nonexistent skills. Alt Library, the Sacramento Public Library’s alternative-minded social group, is holding a Bad Art Night competition on Wednesday. So for those of you who can’t tell the difference between a Rothko and a Renoir, here’s your chance to win 15 minutes of infamy. Just show up at the Central branch of the public library Wednesday evening with your measly untrained hand. The group will provide all the art supplies you need to screw up a canvas with useless kitsch. If you can produce the worst piece of art, you’ll win an Artist’s Loft acrylic art case, which includes an easel, canvas, paint and brushes. Perhaps it will provide the winner (more correctly, the loser) with a little more practice. Those with artistic talent beware: This event might make you cringe, or at least laugh condescendingly.

Bad Art Night takes place Wednesday, December 15, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 828 I Street. For more information, call (916) 264-2770 or visit
