We are hosting our first annual Monster Drawing Rally and Art Throwdown, featuring artists at all stages of their careers taking shifts to either draw for two hours in front of a live audience or as a contestant in the Art Throwdown live
pectators can spy on the creative process watching sketches morph into full-fledged works of art. Finished drawings are immediately available for $30 each. If more than one person wants the same work they will draw cards or rock, paper, scissors to win the right to buy! In the middle of the room there will be a head to head Art Throwdown. Four artist will have 90 minutes, the same supplies and one assistant to create an original artwork . The winner will be selected by the attendees. All works will be auctioned off for sale at the end of the competition.
The Monster Drawing Rally and Art Throwdown makes art more accessible as a way to view new talent, interact with Florida’s artistic community, and support Arts Warehouse programming. Inspired by the San Francisco artist-centered nonprofit Southern Exposure, whose mission is to show support to local artists, we’ve adopted a portion of this fund-raising idea to bring Florida artists and Art appreciators to the Arts Warehouse for a night of creating, mingling, drinking, and fun.
The event takes place at the Arts Warehouse, 313 NE 3rd Street, Delray Beach, FL 33444, Friday, June 7, 2019, from 5:00 to 10pm.
A DJ will be spinning beats, and a variety of food and a cash bar will be on hand. The evening also includes an opening Art Reception in our Main Gallery
Street parking along 3rd Street and 3rd Avenue is free. There are two public parking lots which are north of Arts Warehouse on 3rd Avenue. Arts Warehouse is a short walk from the main downtown areas and Pineapple Grove garages. PLEASE do not park in the dirt parking lot at the northwest corner of 3rd & 3rd as it is not a public parking lot.
