Monster Drawing Rally

Donation: $5 & UP
Event Location: Verdi Club
2424 Mariposa Street (between Hampshire and Potrero Streets)
Southern Exposure announces the 9th Annual Monster Drawing Rally at the Verdi Club, a live drawing and fundraising event featuring over 130 artists.
Providing the basic necessities of the drawing practice--pencils, charcoal, pens, markers, ink, and paper--Southern Exposure creates the context while the artists create the content of the drawings. The evening will consist of four one-hour shifts with approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously each hour. As the drawings are completed they will be hung on the walls and available for purchase for $60 each. The Monster Drawing Rally promises to be an action-packed spectacle you won't want to miss!
The Monster Drawing Rally provides a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after it's completion. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for Southern Exposure's Exhibitions and Artists in Education Programs.
The evening will also provide a sneak peek of Southern Exposure's new home! Southern Exposure is moving to a new 4,000 square foot space on 20th Street in the Mission District in late spring of 2009. Plans, drawings, information and ways to get involved will all be available at the event.
Music will be delivered all night long by Bo Derelict.
Curbside tacos sold by El Tonayense.
Generous in-kind donations for the 9th Annual Monster Drawing Rally are provided by Trumer Brauerei Berkeley, Bridgeport Brewery, and Nectar Ales.
