|Ciné and ATHICA
Joint Fundraising Event
Saturday, November 2, 2019, 10am-3:00pm
Location: Ciné, 234 W Hancock Ave., Athens, GA 30601
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, Amanda Burk, Jim Barsness, Camille Hayes, Terry Rowlett, Susan Hable, Stan Mullins, Ray Lee, and Erin McIntosh. More artists are signing up every day; see the complete list 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.

Attendees will be able to buy original art works produced by local artists during hour-long art-making rounds. The schedule starts at 10:00, with three rounds of art-making and ongoing sales (10-11am; 11:15am-12:15pm; and 12:30– 1:30pm) with a final half-price sale starting at 1:45pm. Multiple buyers vying for the same piece will draw the high-card from the deck to win the right to purchase.
