MDR is a live drawing event and fundraiser featuring over 100 artists creating original works of art in one hour shifts. As the drawings are completed, they will be hung on the walls and made available to purchase for $65 each.
MDR provides a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to own a work of art minutes after its completion. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for SPACES' public projects.

Monster Drawing Rally was conceived by Southern Exposure (SoEx) in San Francisco and has become a national model. SoEx has partnered with nonprofit arts organizations in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Richmond, Brooklyn and now Cleveland to help them establish the Monster Drawing Rally with SoEx's support. SoEx is proud to share their successful fundraising models and community-building strategies with similar artist-centered organizations.
