Monster Drawing Rally 2012

Event: Thursday, April 5, 2012, 6:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Artists drawing: 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Work Remains on view through Saturday, April 7, 2012

 

Monster Drawing Rally is a live drawing event and fundraiser featuring over 100 artists.

 

Demystifying a process that usually takes place in the privacy of the studio, the Monster Drawing Rally allows spectators to observe artists in the act of creation in the public domain. In keeping with SPACES' mission to provide a public forum for artists, the Monster Drawing Rally sets the stage for extraordinary interaction.

 

Providing the basic necessities of the drawing practice—pencils, charcoal, pens, markers, ink, and paper—SPACES creates the context while the artists create the content of the drawings. The evening will consist of one-hour drawing shifts that each feature approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously. As the drawings are completed, they will be hung on the walls and made available for purchase for $65 each. The Monster Drawing Rally provides a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after its completion. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for SPACES' exhibitions and residency programs.
