Cleveland, OH, March 8, 2012-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. This is the second year of the Monster Drawing Rally at SPACES, and 2011 was a tremendous success.
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 25 artists drawing simultaneously. As the drawings are completed, they are 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.
