The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, better known as MOCAD, is hosting a Monster Drawing Rally to raise money for the gallery. They have invited over 50 local artists to come and create original drawings that you can purchase right after they have finished creating them.
The Monster Drawing Rally was created by San Francisco's Southern Exposure. They developed the idea of having artists create original art in front of the people that are purchasing it.
The Detroit event is sponsored by French Paper and Utrecht. There's a $10 fee at the door and each piece of art will cost $40. All of the money from the sale goes directly to MOCAD and its programs.
MOCAD is located at 4454 Woodward Ave. in Detroit. Check out the list of local artists below and head down this Friday, December 7th, for the event!
