MOCAD's 5th Annual Monster Drawing Rally, a public art-making event and fundraiser, will feature 70 artists in two one-hour shifts, drawing in front of a live audience and making their private studio practices a public performance. Artists at all stages of their careers will create sensational works using a variety of materials: everything from collage and watercolor to ink and graphite. Spectators will have the opportunity to witness the creative process, watching as ideas transform into fully-fledged artworks. Each piece immediately becomes available for sale at $40. Proceeds from Monster Drawing Rally support MOCAD's operations, exhibitions, and programs.
To date, over 300 artists have participated in New Wave's Annual Monster Drawing Rally, generously donating their talent, time, and artwork to the organization. Monster Drawing Rally is an event concept originally developed by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, CA, who proudly share it as an open source fundraising model.
