As Athens’ leading independent, non-profit, cultural venues, Ciné and ATHICA provide homes for the creative culture that our area artists, musicians, filmmakers, performers, and writers produce and that contributes to the vibrant community of Athens. In recognition of this shared mission, Ciné and ATHICA are joining forces to host a Monster Drawing Rally as a collaborative fundraising event. Monster (as in “REALLY BIG event”) Drawing Rallies originated several years ago at Southern Exposure, an arts-centered non-profit in San Francisco. Since then, this highly successful fundraiser has been replicated by arts organizations in cities throughout the U.S.
As a business or individual in this creative community which we serve, please consider sponsoring this important and lively fundraising event in which artists produce works in front of a live audience, which are then made available for sale to the attendees.
Ciné and ATHICA are joining forces to host this Monster (as in “REALLY BIG”) fundraising event in which over 60 artists produce works in front of a live audience, which are then immediately donated and made available for sale to the attendees. A unique mix of live performance, art sale, and art party, the Monster Drawing Rally gives all involved the chance to see art-making in action; connect with local artists; mingle with friends; and buy the finished works at the low price of $60 each as they are created and posted on the buy wall. Confirmed participating artists include Art Rosenbaum, Lou Kregel, Amanda Burk, Jim Barsness, Camille Hayes, Will Eskridge, John Cleaveland, Susan Hable, Stan Mullins, Ray Lee, and Michael Lachowski. More artists are signing up every day; the complete list appears below.
The event will feature MC Didi Dunphy of the Lyndon House Arts Center and local favorite DJ Mahogany to provide musical inspiration. Bloody Marys and snacks will be available for purchase. Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event for $10.00; kids get in free. Vintage cartoons will play in one of the Ciné theatres throughout the event as alternative fun for kids.
Proceeds from the event provide direct support for both Ciné and ATHICA programs.
