Southern Exposure is bringing the 9th Annual Monster Drawing Rally, a live drawing and fundraising event featuring over 130 artists, to San Francisco's Verdi Club tonight, February 27th. There's also going to be music delivered all night long by Bo Derelict, drinks and curbside tacos sold by the very yummy El Tonayense.
Southern Exposure provides the basic necessities for the artists - pencils, charcoal, pens, markers, ink, and paper, while the artists create the content of the drawings. As the drawings are completed they will be hung on the walls and available for purchase for $60 each. The Monster Drawing Rally provides a fun and totally 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.
