Monster Drawing Rally
A Live Drawing Event and Fundraiser
Saturday, April 11, 2015, 6:00PM - 10:00PM
Admission: $5 (FREE for SPACES members/Season Pass holders and children age 17 and under)
For the 5th year in a row, SPACES will set the stage for extraordinary interactions between artists and viewers, as new drawings are created on the spot by over 100 of Cleveland's freshest artists. When the drawings are completed, they will be hung on the walls and made available for purchase, at $75 each.
A family-friendly fundraising event, we'll also have Li'l Monster Drawing Rally, where kids can make their own drawings with provided materials and hang them on the walls of the SPACES gallery. This year, the Li'l Monster Drawing Rally is presented by our Big Foot Sponsor, Swagelok.
$5 ticket includes admission to the Monster Drawing Rally; participation in the Li'l Monster Drawing Rally for kids, presented by Swagelok, and Teen Wolf Drawing Rally for bigger kids; non-stop tunes by Mr. Suit aka DJ TotalBusiness; cash bar; yummy food provided by the TOUCH Supper Truck; and a spin on the Blick Art Materials Prize Wheel. We'll also have a raffle for incredible prizes, including a one-year SPACES Season Pass family membership, a one-year household membership to MOCA Cleveland, and 4 weeks of unlimited yoga + 75 minute massage at Vision Yoga & Wellness.
