What exactly IS a Monster Drawing Rally?
Part performance, part art-bazaar, part silent auction, and one of Creative York's liveliest fund-raising events! During a Monster Drawing Rally artists create artworks from start-to-finish while under a time limit in front of a live audience, who can silently bid on the works in progress. The Monster Drawing Rally offers a rare and exciting opportunity to watch artists in action and the possibility to take home their completed pieces, all while supporting a good cause! Plus live music by Chris Dempwolf (from The Shake Up and Dempwolf and The Damage Done)! King Brät Gourmet Hot Dogs will have food and beverages available for purchase, including vegan and gluten-free options!
See art-making in action; connect with local artists; mingle with friends! Food and beverages will be available on site for purchase.
