Originally conceived by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, Monster Drawing Rally is usually a live art event that features over 70 artists. Part performance, part art bazaar, part party, Monster Drawing Rally offers our community the rare opportunity to watch their favorite local artists at work, AND it raises general operating support for 1708 Gallery.
