Monster Drawing Rally
Jun. 23, 2017, 07:00 pm
Over the course of the night, artists at all stages of their careers take shifts to draw for an hour in front of a live audience, bringing their private studio practices to the public. As spectators spy on the creative process, sketches morph into full-fledged artworks. Artists will then donate works to be bought the night of the event for $50 each, all proceeds will go to support programming at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art and Artspace New Haven. There will also be a ticketed bourbon tasting from Litchfield Distillery, with Connecticut made varieties including: Straight Bourbon, Double Barrel Bourbon, Vanilla Bourbon and Coffee Bourbon. Food will be available for purchase by Farm Belly. Throughout the night Dave Coon will DJ tunes to set the mood. All art lovers, supporters, and enthusiasts are welcomed to this free event.
Location: Ely House Center for Contemporary Art, 51 Trumbull Street, New Haven, CT
