Originally conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, Monster Drawing Rally is a live art event featuring approximately 60 artists. The event consists of 3 one-hour shifts with up to 20 artists working simultaneously each hour. Once an artist completes a drawing, it will be hung on the wall for viewing. Visitors may purchase completed works of art for $65 each.

Part performance, part art-bazaar, part party, Monster Drawing Rally offers Richmonders the rare opportunity to watch their favorite local artists at work. Monster Drawing Rally is also a fundraiser that raises general operating support for 1708 Gallery. Drawings sold during the event are a full donation to 1708 Gallery.

Please stay tuned for information about 1708 Gallery's 10th annual Monster Drawing Rally in December 2019.
