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. In keeping with Southern Exposure’s mission to make art and artists accessible, the Monster Drawing Rally sets the stage for extraordinary interaction, providing a unique opportunity to watch a drawing come to life, and to purchase a work of art minutes after its completion.
The response to the Monster Drawing Rally continues to grow. To date, over 1,000 artists have all come together to donate talent, time and artwork in support of Southern Exposure's mission. The Monster Drawing Rally has also become a national model. SoEx has partnered with a growing network of nonprofit arts organizations throughout the country, such as The Armory Center for the Arts in Los Angeles, Midway Center for Contemporary Art in Minneapolis, 1708 Gallery in Richmond, MOCAD in Detroit, and Spaces in Cleveland, helping them establish the Monster Drawing Rally with our support. Southern Exposure is proud to share our successful fundraising models and community-building strategies with similar artist-centered organizations, and committed to serving as a resource for the national visual arts community through this and its other programs.
