The Teen Monster Drawing Rally is part performance, part laboratory, part art bazaar, it is an incredible opportunity to watch local teen artists at work with professionals creating original drawings and selling for $15. The Monster Drawing Rally involves 50 artists creating drawings in one hour shifts. These drawings are immediately displayed and sold. It is a fun, fast, and lively event much like a Monster Truck Rally minus the trucks, exhaust, and 2-liters of Mountain Dew.

Demystifying a process that usually takes place in the privacy of the studio, the Monster Drawing Rally allows spectators to observe artists in the act of creation in the public domain. Part performance, part laboratory, part art bazaar, the Monster Drawing Rally is an incredible opportunity for attendees to watch local artists at work creating original drawings - and then buy them! The Monster Drawing Rally event concept was originally developed by Southern Exposure in San Francisco.

Drawing Round 1: 7:00p - 8:00p
Drawing Round 2: 8:30 - 9:30p
