The evening also includes a collaborative art project, music, and food trucks.
In its second year at the NCMA, Monster Drawing Rally makes art more accessible for all people. This gathering is a way to view new talent, interact with North Carolina’s artistic community, and support NCMA programming. Inspired by the San Francisco artist-centered nonprofit Southern Exposure, whose mission is to show support to local artists, we’ve adopted this fund-raising idea to bring North Carolina artists to the Museum for a night of creating, mingling, drinking, and fun.
DJ Forge spins the beats for drawing and grooving.
Food trucks include The Parlour, Stuft, Flirting with Fire, Bulkogi, and Soomsoom Pita Pockets.
Sponsorship provided by Flight Fund, Jerry’s Artarama, Bombshell Beer Company, Ponysaurus Brewing, Trophy Brewing Co., Brüeprint Brewing Company, Spoonflower, Bull Durham Beer Co., Leigh House, and Telepathic Graphics.
