Monster Drawing Rally

Saturday, December 10, 2016


Admission is $5. Kids are free.

The 7th Annual Monster Drawing Rally, featuring over 60 local artists, is a live art event to fundraise exhibitions and programming support for 1708 Gallery, a nonprofit space for new art founded in 1978. Part performance, part art-bazaar, part party, Monster Drawing Rally offers the Richmond community an exciting opportunity to watch their favorite artists at work.

Originally conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, the event consists of 3 one-hour shifts with 20+ artists working simultaneously each hour. Once an artist completes a drawing, it is hung on the wall for viewing. Visitors may purchase completed works of art for $65 each. All funds from drawings sold during the event are a donation to 1708 Gallery.

Monster Drawing Rally is generously sponsored in part by Plaza Artist Materials.
