Part performance, part art-bazaar, a Monster Drawing Rally offers a rare opportunity to watch artists at work and purchase completed works!
Le Petit Monster Drawing Rally will take place on January 8th during our 25th Anniversary Celebration/Capital Campaign Kick-Off.
In our mini (le petit) version, 25 artists will work simultaneously during two 25 minute shifts, creating art pieces that can be purchased for $25 each. 
Please join us for this exciting, engaging event, and learn what the future has in store for YorkArts!
Monster Drawing Rallies were initially conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, and have been recreated by nonprofit organizations in cities like Richmond, Brooklyn, Cleveland, and Los Angeles.
