Monster Drawing Rally 2018

Friday, October 5, 2018
Doors 6:00 – 10:00 PM
at Minnesota Street Project, San Francisco

Our famous annual Monster Drawing Rally is an incredible live drawing event and fundraiser where over 120 artists work side by side. As spectators spy on the creative process, sketches morph into full-fledged artworks – immediately available for affordable prices. All proceeds directly support Southern Exposure's programs.

Special thanks to Fort Point Beer Co. for their generous beverage donation.


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.
