Monster Drawing Rally
The Monster Drawing Rally is an annual benefit for Southern Exposure, a nonprofit art gallery, and it consists of audiences watching artists make art, live. Four hour-long sessions find four groups of artists seated at tables arranged in a ring. You walk around them, voyeuristically witnessing a line turn into a tree turn into an underwater forest. When the hour is up, the results go on the wall, and you can attempt to buy them; everything starts at $60, but collectors bid their favorites up pretty high. The next group of artists then gathers art supplies and starts in on a new batch. The artists are usually great, the venue is the snazzy Verdi Club, beer and wine flow, DJs play music at a level that allows people to talk to their friends, and last year, Southern Exposure hired one of El Tonayense's taco trucks to park outside. Buy, eat, drink, people-watch, learn: The Monster Drawing Rally is one of our favorite things to do all year.
