Monster Drawing Rally V

This is a past event. Friday, July 12 at 5:30pm 9:00pm

Portland Art Museum, Courtyard 1219 S.W. Park Ave., Portland, OR 97205

The Portland Art Museum’s popular Monster Drawing Rally (MDR) returns for a fifth year of drawing under the summer stars! MDR is a drawing event and fundraiser featuring nearly 100 Portland-based artists. Part performance, part laboratory, part art bazaar, the Monster Drawing Rally is an incredible opportunity to watch some of your favorite Portland artists create original drawings from a blank page.

The event begins promptly at 5:30 p.m. in the museum’s courtyard with a one-hour Young Artists drawing round specifically showcasing local artists 17 and under. That is followed by three one-hour rounds, each featuring approximately 25 different artists drawing simultaneously.

As drawings are completed, they are immediately made available for a flat price of $35 each. If more than one person wants to purchase a particular work, the winner will be determined by drawing straws.

Proceeds support free school and youth programs at the Museum.

Bring the family and stop by the L’il Drawing Rally, an area where kids and families are encouraged to sit down and draw.
