Monster Drawing Rally Intern

The Monster Drawing Rally intern works with SoEx staff to coordinate all aspects of the annual Monster Drawing Rally (MDR), an incredible live drawing and fundraiser event where over 120 artists work side by side to create original drawings that immediately go up for sale.

The MDR intern serves as the primary liaison with participating artists. Other responsibilities include sending out event postings and calendar listings, organizing necessary supplies, helping to coordinate volunteers, uploading photos and text to the SoEx website, and data entry. The MDR intern must be available at least one day a week from the beginning of September through the end of October, and must absolutely be available to serve a key position at the event on October 5, 2018.

Skills needed: Excellent organizational skills, good people skills, the ability to work under pressure, an appreciation for contemporary art, proficiency in Google Drive, Microsoft Word, and Excel. Experience with Photoshop and database software a plus.

October 5, 2018

Our famous live drawing event is right around the corner!

On Friday, October 5, 2018 Southern Exposure hosts our famous Monster Drawing Rally – this year returning to Minnesota Street Project!

Picture a room of artists, all furiously producing artwork in one-hour shifts, crowds of people watching the creative process and vying to buy the finished works. It's a fantastically fun event, but it requires a ton of volunteer positions to make everything run smoothly. That's where you come in.

In collaboration with Prison Renaissance and incarcerated artists, activists, and creative thinkers, Southern Exposure and East Side Arts Alliance present an installation of curated audio pieces – from conversations to rap, anecdotes to poetry -- centering the voices of those incarcerated in the Bay Area, and revealing the commonalities between the metropolis inside and the metropolis outside. Three live events will include conversations between incarcerated people and audience members.
