More than seventy-five artists at all stages of their careers take shifts to draw for an hour in front of a live audience, bringing their private studio practices to the public. As spectators spy on the creative process, sketches morph into full-fledged works of art made from collage, watercolor, ink, and graphite.
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.
Save the date: The fourth annual Monster Drawing Rally returns Friday, August 23, 2019.
