The Monster Drawing Rally is by far one of my favorite events of the summer. It’s bananas. Seventy five local artists get together and draw in the courtyard of the Portland Art Museum, and whatever they create immediately goes up for sale. Every piece is a flat $35. If more than one person wants the same piece, you draw straws. All funds raised go to support educational programs at the museum, so not only do you attend a fabulous party, observe creativity in action, and get a heck of a deal on original art, but it all goes to a good cause. It’s a win win win!
This year, six of the artists participating are from the RSG. These pieces won’t be for sale that night, but I’m sure they’ll be creating new works that are just as lovely. Hope to see you all there!
