Monster Drawing Rally at MOCAD

The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit is hosting a ‘Monster Drawing Rally’ on December 7th. Go to MOCAD, listen to some music, buy a drawing of a monster made right them and there by one of 90+ local artists for $40.00… sounds like a great night. I’m going to have to see if Annie wants to go, and, if not, maybe I’ll go stag.

From their website:

MOCAD New Wave presents Monster Drawing Rally
Friday December 7, 8PM to 12 Midnight
Admission: $10

Monster Drawing Rally is a live drawing event and fundraiser featuring more than 90 artists. Part performance, part laboratory, part art bazaar, the Monster Drawing Rally is an incredible opportunity to watch your favorite local artists create original drawings. The event begins promptly at 8 pm and consists of three one-hour shifts that each feature approximately 30 artists drawing simultaneously. As the drawings are completed, they’re hung on the walls and made available for purchase for $40 each. Proceeds from the event provide direct support for MOCAD’s programs.

A live DJ will be spinning music to draw and dance to all night long, while our staff, interns and volunteers assist the artists and serve refreshments. This event is sponsored by Utrecht, French Paper and Hour Detroit Magazine.

The event concept, Monster Drawing Rally, was originally developed by Southern Exposure in San Francisco.

The above abominations have nothing to do with the Mocad event, but are by an artist named Dieter VDO that I happened to see just after witing this post.

  1. Sounds like fun. This would have been a great halloween event. But if you can have Christmas in July, why not Monsters in December.
