What is a Monster Drawing Rally?
It’s is a live drawing event and party that allows spectators to spy on the creative process, build relationships with local artists, and grow their art collections.
And we WANT you to be a part of it.
Over the course of the night, artists like you take shifts drawing and making artwork for 50 minutes. Sketches turn into finished pieces made from collage, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, and other media. Finished drawings are immediately available for purchase for $50 each.
Building on a model developed by Southern Exposure, a nonprofit arts organization in San Francisco, the first ever Park City Monster Drawing Rally is planned for June 1, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the Kimball Art Center.
It’s a new partnership program between PCSC Arts and the Kimball Art Center to make local artists and their artwork more visible and accessible to the community.
Live music, food and drinks will be part of the experience.
