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
(Note: The work will no longer be on view at SPACES through Sunday, April 8th.)
Admission: $5 (FREE for SPACES members and children age 17 and under)

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.

Bring the Family!

SPACES will also feature the Li'l Monster Drawing Rally: a section where children and families may sit, draw and display their work on the wall for the evening or the weekend. Children age 17 and under are admitted to the Monster Drawing Rally for FREE! Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Eats

Touch Supper Club's food truck will be parked out front selling its delicious wares for the Monster Drawing Rally crowds. Come early, grab a meal, and then head in to make sure you beat out all the other buyers who want to get their hands on your favorite drawings.
