Monster Drawing Rally 2017
What exactly IS a Monster Drawing Rally*?
Monster Drawing Rallies (“monster” as in “a big event”) are a type of fund-raising event that were initially conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, and have been recreated by nonprofit organizations in cities like Richmond, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and now YORK! Part performance, part art-bazaar, artists create artworks right before your eyes while under a 1-hour time limit. The Monster Drawing Rally offers a rare and exciting opportunity for the public to watch artists in action and then purchase their completed pieces!
*(“Monster” as in “a big event” not as in drawings of monsters… although the artists are more than welcome to make monsters if they want to!)
— Live music by Chris Dempwolf (from The Shake Up and Dempwolf & The Damage Done)!
